Country Day Classifieds Makes a Comeback

Country+Day+Classifieds+Makes+a+Comeback

After almost being abducted at my last Craigslist meetup where I attempted to exchange a collection of The Black Eyed Peas CDs for a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist autograph, I’ve been inspired to revive what in the 1980s was the “Country Day Classifieds,” but with a slight modern makeover. Everyone has something to sell. Everyone has something they want to buy. The new Falcon Yard Sale gives the Country Day community a way to exchange goods and services in a fun, safe, and accountable way. The Quill connects buyers to sellers within the FWCD family, so we keep the generational wealth in the right hands. 

Wanted: Hot water. Contact Chef Steve Novak.

Help: FWPD, come quick! An unidentified person just drove on campus! You might need a helicopter.

Wanted: Snitches. See the Honor and Discipline Councils.

Wanted: Tom Mitchell to return the Quill’s money, please. See the Editors.

For Sale: Cooler with built-in speakers, perfect for small bad choices but not life changing bad choices. See Mrs. Teegarden.

Wanted: Someone to create a better acronym than A.L.I.C.E.

Lost: All dignity and self-respect after being dropped during the trust fall on the ropes course.

Found: Blood and used feminine products in the Upper School women’s bathroom. If yours, congratulations! You won an all-inclusive vacation! Please claim your prize in Ms. Wakeland’s office.

Stolen: Our collective childhood. Direct letters of disapproval towards the Lower School demolition crew.

Wanted: Garrett Podell ’15; dead or alive. Reuters News Agency will pay handsomely.

Needed: Mr. Hoppe to tell me that I “have rizz, no cap.”

Wanted: Student fans at the soccer games. Blankets and other cold-weather supplies will not be provided, but you can wear jeans to school. Stay warm out there.

Wanted: Help finishing this article. See the Editor.

About the Contributor
Marshall Lehman, Co-Editor in Chief
Ayo, I’m Marshall, and I’m a senior, therefore, this is my fourth year on the Quill Staff. I’m the Co-Editor in Chief, and I will remind you of my position every waking moment of your life. In my free time, you will typically find me bowling, but never ski balling. My favorite bowling ball is a pink 8 pounder because with it I can really knock down some pins. If you don’t find me there, then you will probably find me hanging out with my shoe collection which totals about 37 pairs (including boots). My favorite sneakies to look at are my UNC Air Jordan 3s, but my favorite pair to wear are my Cactus Jack Air Forces 1s. And if you absolutely cannot find me in either of those two places then I will be on the track (running or jumping) or potentially shooting some hoops (yes, I am an aspiring varsity player). Last, but certainly not least, I would like to make it known that I’m really funny; potentially a 7 on a 10-point scale, but I am slightly (only slightly) aware that not everyone will think that highly of me, but everyone would put me at a 10 out of 10. My motto? A big ego is a healthy ego. One should always remember that a long bio indicates an important person.
