Most of us have rapidly whipped our heads around to stare at something mysterious going down on the side of the road. Few of us, however, have gone to the trouble to turn the car around and see what's actually happening.
In some cases, an empty garbage bag illuminated by moonlight shines like a dead body, or an animal in need rears its head out of a ditch, or an abandoned object pulls our fascination from afar.
Near my house by an intersection, guy dressed in leather and a huge trench coat was stabbing a skateboard with a weird sword. Around 10 on a Sunday night, nobody else around.
The wife was driving when I asked her if we could turn around because I saw something on the side of the road that I was instantly sure was a rubber 1990s WWF Iron Sheik action figure.
We turned around, and she slowed down as I opened the door and scooped up what was 100% a rubber 1990s WWF Iron Sheik action figure.
