I woke up much earlier this week to a strange structure in my neighbor’s backyard.
I studied it, trying to figure out what it could be.
A shower? A bathroom? A closet? Or perhaps a tiny garden gazebo?
Like a small wooden UFO, it simply appeared, and has been parked there quietly ever since.
Now, there is a small house under construction just across the way. And I happen to know that my landlady’s husband is the general contractor for that house. And it just so happens that my landlady and her husband live downstairs.
But that small structure is still much too wide and much too tall to fit through the front door of the half-finished mini-house behind us.
For that matter, even I can figure out that it doesn’t make much sense to build a usable, useful structure in the backyard, only to have to take it all apart again to get it indoors.
So what could it be? What will it be used for? How long will it stay there?
I have no idea.
