Family for Sale on Craigslist
I have offered up my family for sale on Craigslist. See the advertisement at the link below.
As a sort of joke (and to see what sort of reaction I would get), I posted my short fiction, “Family for Sale,” as an ad on Craigslist.
The short story, about a person who wishes he could just offer up his family for sale, was originally published in The Potomac: a journal of poetry and politics.
“It's a shame, when you think about it, that you can't trade in a family. Like a car or a girlfriend. Just put a family portrait up on Craigslist, make a few appointments, and hand over the birth certificates and Social Security cards.”
[Disclaimer: My real family is not for sale.]
