It was the strangest thing. I was at the park with Zack this morning and a Parks & Recreation truck rolled up and parked near the play scape. This older, overweight woman gets out of the passenger side, dressed in her own clothes--no neon orange vest or anything--holding a bright blue plastic bag and one of those poles with a spike at the end for picking up trash without bending over. It was such a strange sight, this older woman, struggling in the heat to even walk, picking up trash on the playground, while the P&R guy leaned on his truck, smoking a cigarette and later kind of hovering over her while she searched around for trash to pick up. As I watched them, I tried to imagine what crime that woman could have committed to land her here. Whatever it was, she was definitely paying for it--at 9AM it was already like 90 degrees out and she did not look comfortable.
