Toilets in trees?!
Okay, so I exaggerate. It was only one toilet in one tree, but if there’s one in my neck of the woods, there’s bound to be more in other parts of the world.
Don’t believe me? I probably wouldn’t have either – if I hadn’t seen it with my own two eyes on my way home from a dental appointment last week. I’m not even sure how it caught my eye being in a stand of trees on the other side of the highway, but there it was.
I burst out laughing and looked for the closest place to turn around, then I had to look for another place to turn around because I couldn’t remember exactly where it was. All in all, I went about two miles out of my way to find it again…
And so, I made the ten or twelve mile trip back, found it on the right side of the road and took this shot…
God’s truth, I really thought I’d have a boatload of other weird examples to share, but it’s getting close to being past my bedtime and only one more thing comes to mind. That would be the sofa that bounced out of a pickup truck. On the freeway. With the driver tooling along at about 75 mph. Right in front of my mother and me. About five minutes after she told me about an arm chair flying out of a pickup truck in front of my aunt and uncle.
Well, there was the old lady who lived next door when I was about five. The one whose bathtub was on her back porch. The same porch that had no fencing around it. And she did take baths out there in warm weather. Fortunately, I don’t remember any details.
But the fact remains, no matter how many weird things I’ve seen, or will see, the toilet in the tree is probably never going to be knocked out of that number one spot.
