This might be crazy talk

OK, so those of you wiser and more familiar with the ways of the world, here's a question for you:

Why do yard sales / garage sales/ tag sales / estate sales / etc. start at o'dark thirty in the morning?

Why do they not go from, oh, I don't know, 12 noon-4 p.m. instead?

'Cause that would be a lot more convenient for me, I'm just sayin'.

Today after meeting my "good daughter" obligations (read: attended a function downtown with my mom. It was nice but it ruled out any bargain hunting in the a.m hours.) I hurried my children out of nap time (crazy! That's just crazy!) so we could rush over to some local yard sales as they were packing up the goods.

We bought $5 worth of books and $4 worth of Legos. So it wasn't a total loss.

But still, 12-4 would be a lot more fun: walking in the sunshine, searching out the real finds, after a leisurely brunch...

I can't be the only one who thinks this way. So if, in the future, you get to attend a yard sale in the cool of the evening instead of the cool of the dawn, you'll know whom to thank.
