Now in the land of things I would never expect, seeing sex-related paraphenalia in the gutter along the side of the street is pretty high up there. However, this apparently happens. I promise I will not look at all of the people in my neighborhood wondering which one it is with the fetish for firemen. Time to pick a new walking route!
If that weren't bad enough: ad copy.
He's the hero with the 12" hose makes it sound like the worst of trashy romance novels. Can you imagine knitting for that? Especially this pattern. It would take forever unless you used a bulky yarn!
I have to admit that I almost cropped the picture to get the cigarette butt out of the shot. Things like that (and not the happy fireman) make me want to have one of those spikes on a stick to clean up the neighborhood while I am walking Victor. I'm sure we could clean up a few pounds of street trash every week!
So, what is the weirdest thing you've found while walking out and about?
Before this item, for me it was when I was volunteering for a race and while picking up the cups dropped at the water station, that I noticed a lot of syringes. While I know drugs happen (and the race was in Boston rather than a burb), it is still a bit of a shock to see such obvious signs of drug use. Of course, it was more sad than weird.
I finished knitting something last week. Hopefully I will have extra pictures of it soon, so I can share the hilarity and somberness of it all.
