We Got Planted on Thanksgiving

To be candid, I share our daughter's amusement.  At like 8-9am, I heard a thud outside and thought little of it.  When I later noticed the pot and accompanying dirt outside, I felt rather bemused.

Mrs. Doubtfire has her run by fruitings, Germany has its blurred building street view eggings, and now I guess we have our own drive by plantings.

My wife thinks it was the antics of a senseless inebriate.  I, on the other hand, feel differently.  How could a wine-sodden hooligan effectively launch such a large pot over the moat, surrounding our apartment?

Nay, I believe this was a direct attack.  But why?  Is it because I like the Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, or Denver Nuggets?  Is this the aftermath of an angry Bengals fan letting off steam at an "out-of-towner" and teaching him "who dey" are?  This unsolved mystery could live on forever.

In the end, like our daughter, I'm very thankful for some random, Thanksgiving Day amusement.  So, I say "Thank you, Mr. Random Potted Plant Thrower!"  (Cue Budweiser background singer.)

Feel free to weigh in with your own conspiracy theory, in the Comments section, below.  (I'm looking forward to completing your training, F-Word.)

Clearly you have offended somone who thinks you are not "green" enough. It would be like throwing blood on people wearing fur coats. Just my guess. REUSE, RECYCLE, REDUCE!!!

Hmm. Maybe it was the UC Sustainability Police?

On second thought, maybe someone simply thought our porch looked barren and sad and wanted to liven it up?

What is this world coming to...plant bombings! :) My theory, someone was reeeeeally going to teach someone else a lesson, but they got the wrong apartment. Perhaps alcohol or other such enhancement was involved?

Hey, I still think it was alcohol. Our partying neighbors probably still had some affects going on from the drinking the night before. Hey, maybe we can use the dirt to fill our wheat grass tray! jk
