I thought about putting this in the “humor” category but decided it worked better under “disturbing news”. Via the Denver Channel:
DENVER — Consider it one-stop shopping. Buy a fully-furnished house, get a wife.
Deborah Hale is selling her $600,000 Washington Park brick bungalow on eBay. The home was built in 1910, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a tanning bed and a hot tub. Furnishings include a big screen TV, lawn tools and a lawn mower.
To sweeten the deal, Hale is including herself in the sale.
The 48-year-old Albuquerque woman, who runs her own wholesale jewelry business, said the offer for a bride is non-binding, which means that neither party is obligated to complete the transaction.
Hale said her online auction is just one way for her to meet new and interesting people. Having been married once before, Hale said women her age have to try harder to meet men and she’s hoping the exposure will allow her to possibly meet the man of her dreams.
“Ideally, I would like for him to be between the ages of 40 and 60. I would like for him to be intelligent. I really love intelligent men. A man who could cook would be wonderful because I am not a great cook,” Hale said.
Hale also wants Mr. Right to be adventurous, kind, physically fit, and generous. He has to have a professional career, should love to travel and children from a previous relationship are welcome, she said.
Wonders never will cease ……
