Trading Up

A Montreal blogger is “living on magic,” trying to trade up from a red paper clip to a house. His trades thus far are almost surreal:

  • Paper clip for a fish-shaped pen
  • Fish-shaped pen for a clay doorknob with a funny face on it
  • Clay doorknob for a camping stove
  • Stove for a generator
  • Generator for an “instant party”
  • Instant party for a snowmobile
  • Snowmobile for an all-expenses-paid trip to Yahk, British Columbia
  • Yahk trip for a panel van
  • Van for a recording contract
  • Recording contract for the year of free rent in Phoenix

We should all live on such magic.
