The hubbinator and I take our dog for a walk every evening. And you know what that means. Those poop bags aren’t going to throw away themselves. So it’s up to us to scoop and dump those bundles. Fortunately in the park we visit, there are plenty of places to dump those packets.
And plenty of opportunity to stand around those bins while the dog sniffs the trash bins.
Which is how we noticed it. You know the kind of thing that stands out. Not in a that’s not garbage kind of way, but a What-in the-World kind of way.
In this case, it was part of a Monopoly board. Not all of it. Not a broken half of a board. But a quarter of a Monopoly board. 1/4. And the rest of it wasn’t in any of the other trash cans.
Why and how did a quarter of a Monopoly board get into the can in the center of the part? Hubbinator believes someone was pissed at the retirement of the thimble from the game board. Given that I don’t like the game, I think it was someone who feels the same and wanted to prevent it from ever being played again.
Or there could have been a bad break up and someone decided to destroy the ex’s beloved game and scatter the pieces around the Valley.
Any way, this will be a mystery that will never be solved.
