On our morning jog today, we came across a full-sized billiard table that someone was throwing away. It was next to their trash dumpster in the alley behind their house. My first thought was, "How in the world are they going to get that into the garbage truck?"
Here in Chicago you can throw away anything
, and it magically disappears on trash day. I've seen full-sized sofas, windows and doors, piles of bricks... you name it, it's been thrown away. Just this morning during a 30 minute jog, (besides the billiard table) I spotted a computer, a toilet, a bathroom sink, a 6-foot tall/4-tier metal shelving unit, and a very
large box labeled "Sleep Pants". That last item was intriguing; I wanted to go back and check out the picture on the side of the box, but PR was already several paces ahead of me, so I let it go. I'm still wondering, though...
