This is a story about my rug.
Today I posted a boring old gray Ikea rug on the free section of Vancouver Craigslist at around 1:30am.
By the time I woke up for work a few hours later, much to my surprise, I’d already received 36 emails about it. When I arrived at work at 9:00, the number was above 50. All in all, I got nearly 70 emails from would-be rug recipients.
I am not one to be trusted with such power, so rather than give the rug away to the speediest responder or pick someone random off of the list, I made them compete for my amusement. The premise was simple: write a haiku about my rug. Best one gets it.
And so, without further ado, here are the Free Rug Haikus.
