But today, I found a dead bird lying in the middle of the sidewalk. It appeared uninjured. I think it was a finch - black, gray, yellow underarms (underwings?) There were no houses nearby. I used two leaves to move it off to the side.
A few blocks later, a bottle of orange liquid. Small, like a cough-syrup bottle. But when I picked it up, it turned out to be a half-full bottle of "oncology mouthwash." That sounds ominious. I propped it up against a telephone pole.
I couldn't decide what the third weird thing was that I saw on my run. A brand new pen? A dresser in pretty good shape, labeled "free"? Or was it the RV, parked at busy intersection, that appeared to be occupied? I've heard of "staycations," but that's a bit much.
