I didn’t lose a sofa, I gained a wife.


All I wanted to do was sell my sofa. but there I was, down one of the steamier back alleys of Craigslist.com, browsing a section entitled “Los Angeles Casual Encounters.”

Honestly, I can’t remember how exactly I arrived there from the Furniture For Sale section. Perhaps I clicked on something by accident. Perhaps it was some kind of malfunction. Regardless, I can report that most of the postings I found there were indecipherable to the layman, composed as they were of curiously obscene combinations of letters and numbers (w4m, m4m, m4w, t4m, etc.). Not everything appeared in code, however. Some of the postings stuck to a more straightforward formula: a time, a place, and a suggestive profanity. You had to admire the simplicity.
