oh and a bullet

Our friend H found a bullet by his door, an un-exploded bullet.  It disturbed him so much that he walked into our house to show it to us.  He lives on the same property as us.  He comes in without knocking.  Usually only to deliver the mail in the afternoons, so I was surprised to […]

“Should I even be washing this pitcher?”  He’s washing a beige plastic pitcher. “As opposed to throwing it away?” “Yeah.” “Does it have a lid?” “No.” “Where was it?” “In the office.” “Why was it in the office?” “I don’t know.”  One of many office mysteries.
