"I had clean grief, instead of muddy water."

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

A woman finds a great deal -- a nearly new Cadillac for only $5,000. But the seller is a helpless widow. That could be me, the buyer realizes. Thus begins a sad and wonderful story.
