The Saga of the Discarded Computer Monitor.
So about a month or so ago a college student (I'm guessing) tossed away this computer monitor on the sidewalk next to my shop.
I didn't think much about. I assumed the city would pick it when they picked up trash.
Every morning he would greet me to start my day....."Hello, Mr IANO!"
Every night a "Good Night, Mr. IANO!"
It sat. And sat. And sat.
Nobody picked him up.
He became part of the neighborhood.
Someone placed a soft drink can on him.
An empty sundae bowl.
A banana peel.
Scratched lottery ticket.
Empty pack of Marlboro.
He sat there covered in debris.
On the sidewalk.
Then I came in the other morning and he was sitting on the street.
Next morning his screen was smashed.
He still sits. He waits.
He's like a homeless person. People pretend they don't see him.
I wonder if he'll be there when the weather turns cold?
I will keep you updated.
