Found: A Clean White Couch

What might this be? Is this an eviction or a house cleaning? The couch, it’s definitely ready to go. The clothes less so.

Looking closer, that would look good in my house. Oh where is a pick-up truck when you need one. If only I had Don’s cell phone number.

Then again, this will not last long and Don lives far, far away. The urban rats will cart off the couch, by hand if need be.

The clothes, I went through them by hand. Not much. Not like the sweet leather jacket I found once. That street find kept me warm, all the way to Peace Corps Russia.

    Then by your own definition, you are also an urban rat. ;-) This reminds me of years ago when I finally gave up on dealing with roommates. On moving out I discarded numerous pieces of (mostly junk) furniture simply by placing them out by the curb. I swear, withing minutes people arrived and were taking turns “test driving” that battered recliner, etc., before tossing it into the back of a pick-up or hauling it away by hand up the street.

    I am so an urban rat. One I put out a futon, disassembled, and as I was walking back inside, I heard a car stop and folks grabbed the futon. Then again, I’m known to pick up many odd things here and there.

    I used to do a lot of this sort of “gathering” but after moving countless times I finally came to the conclusion that less is more. Stuff is overrated, keep it simple. At least that’s my motto. On the other hand, I probably wouldn’t turn down a cool leather jacket for free.
