The Hunt Begins

July 30, 2008

Today is July 30th. For most people, it’s just another day. For me, though, it’s the beginning of a two day hunt. You see, three apartments within a one-block area are having people move out so new tenants can move in. As a result, people throw away things they don’t want to haul away. They leave it in or around a dumpster. The quality/value of items people are willing to trash is remarkable. So tomorrow I’m going to look in and around dumpsters to see if I can pick anything nice.

I have my limits, though. I’m only going to peer over the top of the dumpster to see if there’s anything valuable in there. I’m not hardcore enough to dive in and churn up cardboard boxes to see if anything’s under there. That would leave me smelling like garbage juice. Not a good way to meet girls.
