It is with great trepidation that I finally decided to put my most treasured asset, the American Dream on sale. I arrived to this country and readily exchanged my burdensome cosmopolitan baggage for the plain old American Dream. I have watched how the reality dismantled my American Dream block by block. Yet, I am still an optimist, although admittedly a very slow learner. So my sincere hope is that with the proceeds of this sale I would be able to reboot my life. I understand people and their motivations better and I am more skeptical with moderate expectations. I am certain that this transaction will enable me to dig deep down and uncover my innate creative mediocrity (and pay my recession rent in the process). If you would like to hire me please kindly put the salary as a bid and I will promptly ship to you my American Dream complete with no questions asked a fully refundable life time warranty. Thank you!
