I’ve been playing with this idea that you can learn a lot about a city/town by what gets posted on the “free” section of its craigslist page. I scanned through the last week of postings and here are some highlights:
-Worn tire (owner says it has 30% of its tread)
-Hospital bed in “excellent condition”
–Kitchen table and 1 double brass bed. Notable because the ads are written like ee cumming’s poems.
-Floppy drive that doesn’t work
-Flamingos (Not Worcester, but close enough.)
-Someone looking for someone to “hold [him] accountable” for working out, which includes checking in via email and creating a “penalty” where he’d “do something unpleasant or something” if he wasn’t keeping up. It’s since been taken down and re-posted on Hartford’s Craigslist page.
I have no idea what this all says about Worcester. Any theories are welcome.
