My irregular musings on city life, politics, baseball, roller derby, and whatever happens to be getting my goat today.

Some Idiot

Some idiot stole our basil plant this morning.

Yes, the whole fucking plant. It was there last night when Trope got parsley for the mashed potatoes, and this morning when I left for work it was gone. I doubt the construction guys next door took it - where would they put it? We did talk to a couple homeless guys in the alley about our "crops" one day. But why would they take the basil rather than, say, the rhubarb, which you could actually make into a meal?

Who the fuck steals a basil plant out of the ground? What, they needed to feed their pesto addiction right fucking now?

This is the kind of bullshit that can turn you against a community. Let's just say I like this place, but I'd like it more if I had a gate with a lock on it by the alley and between the houses, like we had across the street.

Be warned, if I catch you tresspassing in my backyard, I'm not going to ask you why you're there. I'm going to beat you to death with a shovel and dump your body in Lake Calumet. So stay out.
