DEEP PURPLE DREAMS ... AT 7TH AND ALTA!
"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it." -- Alice Walker, The Color Purple.
"Oh my God, it's a pile of Purple Dog Poop!" -- Genevieve, at the corner of 7th and Alta.
Ladies and Gentlemen, something unusual was afoot this morning at the corner of 7th and Alta. Someone left a pile of purple poop in front of Our Favorite Fixer Upper. Now I'm no expert, but even I know purple poop isn't the kind of thing that comes along every day. You have to work at it. Did some neighborhood dog get loose in a blueberry patch? Or maybe Starbucks was giving out free samples of its Very Berry Bran Muffins? We may never know, but one thing's for sure: it wasn't heaven scent ...!
