A sharpie, a cleaver, and a toy plane in the middle of the sidewalk. There’s a good chance this story didn’t have a happy ending…
You can expect to see a lot of strange things in Downtown Vancouver — and a bunch of stuff on the ground isn’t generally noteworthy — but something here caught my eye, and my friends went on ahead.
A cleaver and a toy plane? Also note the broken strap, and is that a baby bottle? I couldn’t get a much closer look because when I stopped to take a picture, an abrassive woman came charging at me, asking what I was doing.
It seemed possible that this was her stuff, and that this section of the sidewalk was her home, and she thought I was trying to take her stuff. “I’m taking a picture of all this cool stuff!” I said enthusiastically. She looked around and agreed, and then insisted on posing with the ‘cool stuff.’
I probably should have kept that photo, but I did not. She promptly left, and I was able to take the photo you see here. But I had to hurry, because apparently no one else thought that this scene was cool enough to delay sushi, nor was I worth waiting up for.
