So, the thing I am holding here. It consists of-
- A metal plant stand.
- An old wire rack.
- A draft blocker.
I am holding them like this because we got them at a flea market and it was easier to carry this way. Nothing strange about it, right?
All throughout Center City and South Philadelphia and on the subway, people stared and gaped, as though it was the craziest thing they ever did see.
I don’t understand. People walking past, people in cars, every single one. Didn’t just glance- no- they would look in amazement and disgust and who knows what. A family passed us and a child even exclaimed “OH MY GOD!” We passed two S. Philly dudes in conversation who stopped cold and breathlessly whispered, “What is that?”
I honestly do not know what the deal is. Does it look like something else I have no idea about? A gun? A bomb? A monster from Mars? Some sort of sex toy?
If anyone could enlighten me here, I’d appreciate it. To me it just looks like a metal thing fitting in another metal thing with some sock thing.
Agreed with the commenter who said it looks like a snake at first.
