As I stepped off the train this morning on my way to the gym, I was lost in thoughts about how Lauren Conrad is exactly why The Hills works, she’s perfect enough to make women want to be her and flawed enough for women to hate her, thus evoking the two strongest emotions there are – jealousy and anger – from viewers.
With these thoughts swirling in my head, I noticed that a homeless guy had set up shop on the platform across the tracks from me.
He was covered in blankets and a bunch of other miscellaneous stuff, pretty much rocking the Standard Homeless Dude Uniform.
He also had a cart full of stuff next to him, and in this cart was a dust buster.
A homeless dude, someone whose life was ever-changing and could only hold onto a few select items from day to day, decided that the dust buster was making the cut.
A dust buster.
Obviously, I was quite impressed by this.
The man probably has shit in his underwear every single day of his life, but when he goes to settle down on whatever grate or staircase he chooses for the night, he makes sure he tidies up the space first.
A little dust bust here, a little dust bust there and he’s ready for the night.
I bet he’s quite the whiz with that little Tool Of Dirt Destruction, zooming it around with the greatest of ease, the envy of all of his friends!
Or maybe he just uses it to beat people who try and steal his socks.
That’s a tough one to call.
