I’m not the sort of person who’s curious about what people have got. I don’t go snooping or peeking into windows. I’m always afraid the more I look, the more I’ll want. But I’ve changed my attitude after today’s treasure. Hit the jackpot.

I went dumpster diving today.

Found a 1961 Motorola console TV. Antenna still attached. Water stain on top. I haven’t plugged it in to see if it works. I don’t care. I’m using it as furniture, not an electronic entertainment device. It’s in the front hall. Now, I drive the neighborhood hoping to duplicate my good fortune.
