The tree that walked

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked him why this tree had legs. He smiled and told me that it did seem unusual.

I suggested to the tall person that perhaps the tree had been unhappy living in a forest and decided to grow legs so that it could walk to a better place.

The tall person agreed and said that sometimes it is difficult to see the wood for the trees and it becomes necessary to remove yourself from a situation.

I didn’t understand that and asked him why the tree decided to come and live here by the side of a road in a city.

The tall person smiled and said that all journeys finish somewhere.

The Berber barber

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

I pointed the sign out to the tall person who told me that Berbers are an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa and their culture probably dates back more than 4,000 years.

Oh, because of the scissors and combs I thought it was a misspelling of ‘barber’.

And do all Berber men have white beards and dark hair like the man in the picture I asked.

The tall person smiled and told me that such a hair color combination was unusual but he really didn’t know if it was a distinctive characteristic of Berber men.

Hmm. I don’t recall noticing any Berbers in Tbilisi and I suspect that Mustafa is not very busy.

The colorful cotton bud salesman

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that the man must be delivering the colorful cotton buds to people in the neighborhood who have over-sized ears.

The tall person smiled and said that the man was a door-to-door salesman selling lightweight telescopic dusters that have a fine, electrostatic dust collecting head. 

Oh. So how do people with over-sized ears keep them clean? The tall person didn’t know the answer to that so we walked on.

Sharp toothed monster unfairly blamed in car attack

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Yes, something had eaten this car! I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that we be extra vigilant as a dangerous predator with extremely sharp teeth was clearly prowling the neighborhood.

The tall person smiled and said that the car had probably been in a crash and subsequently stripped of anything useful.

Oh. That is a sad fate but my neighbors will be relieved that a sharp toothed monster is not on the loose.

A long throw!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I noticed this.

litter bin

I pointed out the trash bin to the tall person and suggested that the owner of the yard has gone to considerable efforts to ensure that his yard is kept clean. The tall person frowned and said that it is more likely that someone has fenced off public land.

Hmm. It does seem like a long throw if you want to dispose of litter from this side of the fence.

Plants facing acute housing shortage

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I found this strange sight.

Grass in bottle

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked him why the grass had decided to make its home inside a discarded bottle. He told me that it was a warm, safe home for the plant.

I suggested to the tall person that the people in the neighborhood must like plants very much as I have seen a number of discarded bottles that had obviously been donated to the plants in an effort to alleviate their housing shortage but he shook his head and said that it was a bad thing to do. He told me that people who leave trash in the countryside do not think of the harm it can cause to plants and animals.

Oh. In that case, I think you should vacate your greenhouse little plant. Live under the sky like nature intended and do not collaborate with the harmful practices of thoughtless people.

Save our Trees!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this strange sight.

Tree in Tbilisi

Someone had gone to extraordinary lengths to protect their tree.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked if people had begun to safeguard the neighborhood trees from illegal logging activity. He smiled and told me that it was unlikely to be the work of environmental activists. He suggested that someone had stacked the bricks for future use and had carefully placed them around the tree.

Hmm. Sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees tall person – or bricks. Just to be safe, I think I should consider additional security for my chewing sticks.
