This is the third post in The Big Swap. Originally posted on Posterous, which has since been shut down.
When I started The Big Trade, I set down a few rules. I wasn’t going to trade for obscene items. Money wasn’t an option. Government secrets were taboo, and so on. One rule I didn’t set was “No uploading pictures of extremely cute bears to influence the vote.” I definitely should have. One look at those bears, and I knew I had found my first trade.
In order to uphold my end of the deal, I had to play the piano for some period of time, so the trade had to be delayed until I had some free time. I was the head musician for a wedding on Friday, which Sarah was also attending, so we agreed to discuss the trade then.
Friday night after the wedding, I found Sarah. She was almost as excited about the trade as I was. We decided to make the trade on Sunday. We’ll meet at her house, where I’ll play the piano for her, her family and an unknown number of others. Maybe we’ll make it a sing-along. Then I’ll get to meet Teddy. I can hardly wait.
On Monday I’ll post some pictures of Teddy doing some cool stuff. I know you’ll fall in love. In the meantime, it’s your turn to think of something special you’d like to trade. If you come up with something, email me or leave a comment below.
P.S. If you want to keep up-to-date on where Teddy ends up, check the right sidebar for the “subscribe by email” link.The Big Swap has ended, but I send out weekly emails and I’d love for you to get them. No, I won’t sell your email address to a greasy fellow in a tweed suit. You’ll just get swap updates, pinkie promise.
