It’s about this time of the year that everyone looks forward to moving. You’ve discovered all of the leaks, splinters and hanging live wires that your apartment has to offer and you can still fantasize that the next place will be different somehow.

But occasionally you can still find a new reason to move. For instance, a weatherneighbor wielding a baseball bat approached me last night to ask about a car in the driveway.

“Hey man, is that your car?”


“Do you know whose it is?”


“Is it abandoned?”

“I don’t know.”

“‘Cause I’d sure like to bash the windows in.”

Monday’s forecast: For Rent – 3 bedrooms, 2-1/2 brains, $3000/mo.
