i am feeling quite the spy lately. first there was the saver's mission, and then there was a craigslist opp that i completed yesterday. i wanted to buy something for the house for our new year's gifts that chris and i do every year (you can read about that here), so i was emailing back and forth with a gentleman from a town about 30 minutes away from our house. (i once read that only minnesotans judge distance by how long it takes to get somewhere, rather than actual distance...is that true?) he happened to mention that he would be near the airport at 4:00, and i happen to live fairly close to the airport, so i asked if he could possibly bring the item to me. well, it was a little out of his way to come to our house, so he asked if we could meet in the ikea parking lot. we exchanged car information (he drove a suburban, i a minivan...very spy-like cars), and off i went to meet him.
the sun was setting as i drove in, and i immediately saw his car, idling in the outskirts of the ikea lot. i pulled in next to him and we both gave each other a slight head nod to acknowledge that we were in fact megan and jim. we got out of our cars, shook hands, money was quietly passed off, and he helped me load the goods into my car. it was all very secretive in a very non-secretive way, but i still felt very much like a spy.
who knows, maybe i'd make a good spy after all. at the very least, i could be a secret shopper.
