This afternoon while I was out running errands, I passed a loaf of bread in the street. Just laying there. On a busy four lane road. That made me very curious. Here are a few of the possibilities I came up with:
a) kids playing in the car got out of hand and launched bread out the window
2) someone gave up carbs abruptly on the way home from the grocery store
Lucky for me, a few miles down the road I stopped at a red light and got the truth. It was a redneck driving a pickup full of un-boxed loaves of bread with no tailgate, of course. If that's not enough to make you love Austin, TX I don't know what is.
Thank you, redneck bread truck man, for keeping Austin weird. For more examples of Austinites keepin' it weird, click here.
