It's so much better than a typical what-you-see-is-what-you-get post.

There is story here. Layers of story. Just read the text from this post on Craigslist.

Here is the Eskimo Topo Duo that you've always wanted since she told you she was pregnant. Show your kids that you're the man and make them realize how cool you are again. This is your chance to build the fire of your hobby. Not recommended for wives already afraid of the water. Divorce manuel not included.

As a man who once tried to help my wife learn to kayak in white water, I know this story could have it all. Love. Growth. Calm, sunset paddles in flat water. Then, tragedy in white water. Screaming. Cursing. Accusations. Regret.

It's all there...and a pretty good deal on a weird boat, too. Maybe it will end well after all.
