Sometimes we find strange things in surprising places, like pubes in our keyboards. Generally I chalk that one up to my occasionally-naked work ethic and my frequent shake-your-thang compiler dance. Other times there is simply no reasonable explanation. Like with this:
That's the roof above my living room. That circular object is a very rusted hubcap.
I know trash pops up in weird places in a city, but a hubcap on my roof? The only way onto the roof from my house is out our bedroom windows.
My investigation into this incident began by quizzing Daisy since her room looks over that part of the roof.
"Daisy! How did that hubcap get on the roof?
"I don't know."
"Did you drive the car out on the roof and leave the hubcap there?"
"No Daddy! I don't even know how to drive! I'm 6! And our car doesn't even have rusted hubcaps!"
"I'll know if you're lying!"
A dead end. Another possible explanation is that maybe our new neighbors hurled the hubcap out their window. Considering how neat and tidy they seem to be, it would be out of place for them to keep something that rusty in their house, let alone start flinging it around like a frisbee. It's very very odd.
Anyway, it would take me a full minute to get out on the roof and retrieve it, so the hubcap is going to stay there for a while. I figure that puts me one busted-toilet-on-the-lawn away from being full-fledged white trash.
