Blue Rubbermaid tote lid. My second one to find this year. It's in my basement. Black running shorts, they fit my husband. Assortment of liquor bottles. Humana insurance card.
Jelly Bean Virtual Run 5ks. A knife. Found during a 5 a.m. run. I picked it up and then ran while laughing hysterically. I have a HUGE joke that runs between a few certain friends about me chasing them to get them to run. I was also greatly amused with my shadow that looked a little freakish of my running with knife held high & ready to attack. I did attempt to hide the knife while other cars passed by. I didn't want anyone calling the cops to report me. Later in the run I DID see a police car so I tucked the knife up my sleeve. I felt like a fugitive.
This is an up close shot of the first picture. The little Jim Beam is what started it all. Will expand on that in a minute.
So, if you didn't notice....I have a lot of liquor bottles in my collection. Which is funny because I'm not much of a drinker. I can't say never, but it's rarity for me. It started one day while I was coming home from a run, I was just around the corner from my house and the bottle (the Jim Beam) caught my eye. I picked it up not even realizing it was the tip of the iceberg. Before I knew it I was seeing those little liquor bottles EVERYWHERE. Seriously, our town has a problem! To some that may not be a news flash, but in my little world it was. I soon realized that a lot of the bottles I was seeing were all the same. So I started only picking them up if they were different in style or brand. I also decided that if it was a big bottle I would only pick it up if it was a glass bottle. One big bottle (E&J Brandy) I found toward the end of my block just lying perfectly intact in the middle of the street.
Hopefully when people see me running with a big bottle in my hands they think it's just a water bottle. Of course, my husband and a few friends have raised eyebrows when they walk in and see an empty Vodka bottle sitting on my dining room table. Again, funny, because we are a dry house yet there it sits out in the open like an everyday object. Haha, my husband keeps teasing me about my little problem and my using my running as a cover up.
I will probably continue with the bottles, but I am getting very picky and specific of what I will pick up. I'm always on the look out for anything as long as it's interesting. I'm sure I'll have more items & stories to tell in the future.
