Last night I rolled my trashcan out to the curb, and with it I left two old suitcases.

Now, understand that on the nights when you leave your trash out on the curb for pickup, crazy people in smoky beat-up vans will drive around and pick through everyone’s refuse.  If it isn’t stinky food in a plastic bag, they are likely to take it.  You wouldn’t believe some of the things I’ve seen them take.  It’s weird, it’s annoying, and in a way it’s a little invasive.

Yet this morning, my suitcases are still there on the curb, and I find myself almost indignant about it.  Like, hey, what’s wrong with my suitcases? Not good enough for you?
