So last night I got up at midnight to guard my Ebay bid on an extremely rare collectable I was hoping no one else had noticed and I could snag for a good price.
In the last 20 seconds of the auction I was sniped by four different people.
I didn't get the collectable, and was understandably upset, seeing as how the auction had been quiet for the last 5 days. I had been lulled into a false sense of security but I also had a very strict budget I couldn't afford to go over. The bid ended up going only a few dollars above my highest bid.
So when I told my husband I didn't get the collectable, he hugged me and said, "It's OK though, because now you have more money to spend on books!"
