Weird Things Seen on the Street, #48

Some back story to preface this next weird thing photo. For the six years I lived in my apartment in Sacramento, there had been a water bottle sitting in the fire extinguisher box across from my living room window. It never moved, and I had no idea if someone had left the bottle there on purpose as a sort of joke, or left it there because they forgot about it, or what had happened. Occasionally I considered taking the bottle and throwing it out, but never did.

Fast forward to July 2016, not quite 2 months before I moved, and I see the water bottle is gone. Someone knocked it out of the box and onto the ground below. I suspect it was the occasionally rowdy guys who lived a few doors down from me. Finding the fallen water bottle downstairs made me a little sad, but it also felt symbolic to my sensitive, sign-and-symbol-loving self. If the water bottle is gone, then it’s time for me to go, too, I thought. And so I did.

The mysterious water bottle is dead. Long live the water bottle.
