Today's Dose of Strange

So.

I just walked out of the office to discover a large, ornate glass growler sitting on a table in the theatre's lobby. It was not there last time I walked through the lobby. Then a homeless looking dude just ambles in like he owns the place.

I ask if I can help him. He says "Yes! I need my bottle!" He walks right past the bag of Taco Bell waiting for a student to pick up at lunch break, grabs the bottle and walks back to his tiny little bike leaned up against the front window.

Then he comes back in carrying a huge dictionary. I cannot figure out how he was even carrying it on that bike. He puts the dictionary down on the bench near the door, says "There's your book!" and rides off.

Is that real or was it a dream?

Ya know , if the dictionary wasn't sitting on the bench where everyone has seen it, I'd think I hallucinated it...

Cool! What kind of dictionary? Websters? OED? I wouldn't mind a dictionary brought to me by a strange messenger.

Sweet. Keep it on the desk, use it when you need it, and if someday someone says it's theirs, let them have it.

If the discussion happened in an odd British accent I'd suggest it was a Monty Python sketch.

Interesting... o_O

So, this was the father of one of the kids you're teaching. He'd picked up the dictionary for his daughter's homework from one of your colleagues early that day and forgot the glass growler on the table. Then he happened to have had a rough day. Say, he's working at the zoo, has his work clothes on, and the badger attacked him earlier and rolled him in the mud. His boss said to get some cleaning disinfectant because the badger cage looks a mess. So he takes off with his bike and remembers the glass growler is still on that table. So he returns the book, picks up the disinfectant, cleans the cage, cleans up himself, and tomorrow you won't know you've met him before when he comes the the premiere of his daughter's theater performance...

How's that for an explanation?

I have no idea what a growler is and I thought it was some kind of animal at first. Either way, it seems a fair exchange for a dictionary.

It is a large glass container, usually filled with beer ;)

Interesting. I had a look for images and it looks like the sort of thing that home brew gets put in. No wonder the chappy wanted it back.
