Several houses around my 'hood either threw big parties over the weekend, or they have major drinking problems. Some families seem to exist only on a steady diet of Pizza Hut and Hungry Man. A few busted open some cool new gizmos or appliances. Exciting for them, though I'll never understand in this day and age why you'd leave a huge box out on the sidewalk announcing you're the proud owner of a new Sony 55 inch 1080 LCD HDTV. I wonder how many home invasions are a result of a garbage man telling his friend, "hey man, I know a house that just got a Wii.." or something like that. More than a few, I think.
I always walk the dog thinking it'll clear my head, but I always arrive home with more questions than clearing.
