Dubois: So I bought a guitar today for $3

It's a beauty, isn't it? And such a bargain. I found it at a Goodwill store in Portland.

I've been without a guitar for many years, so it was good to find one that finally spoke to me.

It called out to me from a display shelf on the end of the toy aisle, near home decorations.

Oh, and did I mention that it's 4 inches long?

That's a guitar pick to the left, and the case to the right.

Yeah, it's small. Too small for my fingers. So I can't play it.

But it will sit on my desk, between my computer screen and keyboard, so it will remind me while I'm working that eventually I will have enough money to get a full-sized one.

Of course, it will probably cost me more than $3. So I guess I'd better get back to work.
