"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means"

You really don't realize just how many definitions of the words "nice" there are until you start looking for a couch on craigslist.

Described as "Great Contemporary Couch"

Where did these couches come from? Are people still buying these new or have they all been hanging around since the 70's???

"Nice Southwestern Style Couch!!" (that is an oxymoron if you ask me)

So the reason that we are looking for a new couch is that we found a new apartment that we will be moving into next month. Our new apartment is very pretty (hardwood floors, crown molding, granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, etc.), our couch is a southwestern style couch found by the side of the road (don't judge, we're poor) and are now just covering with a blanket because it hurts the eyes to look at. I think you can see the discrepancy here.

If you know anyone who is getting rid of a couch in the Austin area I call dibs! I mean, unless it is ugly. We already have one of those.

Just as an aside, can we take a moment to discuss the difference between "sell" and "sale"??? You put something up for SALE because you want to SELL it. I know this is the south (ish) and a lot of words sound the same because of accents but those are actually two different words. Thanks.
