Not only does Even Steven provide for Val. He also evens the score in the other direction. Sometimes at the same location! That ol' Even Steven loves to keep folks off-balance. Which I think qualifies as IRONY, with that name EVEN Steven!
Fresh from picking up a penny dropped right in front of me while waiting to buy scratchers at the Liquor Store on Friday... I proceeded across the parking lot, back to T-Hoe. Good thing I walk with my head down, hoping to spot a penny.
What I spotted in front of T-Hoe was NOT a penny! I would have taken a photo right there, but the parking lot was teeming with Friday evening liquor and cigarette buyers, and I didn't want to be run over. I DID get a photo later at home, after showing my find to Hick:
He said it was a bolt that attaches a license plate to a car bumper. He just put on T-Hoe's new license sticker last week. I asked if he thought it was mine, but Hick did not.
"Well. No matter who it belongs to, I picked it up. Because to me, it looked like A FLAT TIRE WAITING TO HAPPEN!"
"Yeah. That would definitely do it."
So beware, people. You can't let your guard down. Even Steven is everywhere.
