It went a little like this.
Search every day on Craigslist for a certain camera.
Squeal with delight when said camera comes up for sale.
Arrange transaction with nice man named Bob.
The day before transaction (AKA today), withdraw $300 from ATM.
Get a little sick while you're doing it.
Continue to feel sick all the way home. Think of other things the money could be used for.
Walk through the door at home, pray reluctantly for ability to be a responsible adult.
E-mail Bob. Cancel transaction.
Pay student loan online. Watch the $300+ disappear into the black hole. Cry a little.
And that is that.
