Two packages of matzho, one jar each dill pickles and gefilte fish.
Why won’t we eat this stuff? dunno. the gefilte fish is too sweet and
has eggs which two out of three potential eaters is allergic to, the
matzo has gluten (2 out of 4), the dill pickles are only good with
hamburgers on buns…

Oh well. Come and get ’em in Ballston, near ATS.”

    It’s wonderful to find a fan. I love composing freecycle ads, because I get to be a sarcastic nitwit. In PUBLIC. And someone got it. Too cool. FWIW, I also got rid of the food.

  2. Oh, we loved it. Sometimes Freecycle is worth it just to read the ads and what people are trying to get rid of. Thanks so much for the laugh!
