One time when I was driving, I saw a shoe. In the middle of the road. It was weird.
No idea how it got there. Was it thrown out? Did it fall off some redneck who was hanging their foot out the window while driving? (I say redneck, but I’d totally do it if it was more comfortable) Did someone get hit by a car? Is it a sign for something?
Regardless of what it was for or from, it was weird.
It’s not the only time I saw something weird in the road and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
There was another time I saw this dinosaur on the sidewalk.
Why does any of this matter? Because someone has made a blog out of sightings just like these.
It’s called “Sad Stuff On The Street” and it’s great. People submit photos of stuff on the street that seems as ridiculously out of place as that shoe was. And the commentary on it is even better. My favorite is the “Depressed Teddy Bear Series,” because apparently a lot of people leave teddy bears randomly on the street.
