The Dollar Tree store in Kerrville is located in a strip mall across from the high school stadium. As I drove by on my way into the mall parking lot I noticed the stadium parking lot across the street was almost full of over-sized white grocery-bags. Hundreds of white bags taller than a man about four feet to a side. I squinted, but couldn’t fathom what they were.
After I finished in Dollar Tree I crossed the lanes of traffic and pulled into the stadium parking lot for a closer look. Still couldn’t figure it out. But a tree-trimming crew was taking a break there in the parking lot, half-dozen Hispanic guys.
I drove over and rolled down the window, guy in charge strolled up. “What is all that?”
“Six million focking dollars! Six million focking dollars of MY money!”
“Eh? You’re saying those bags are full of money?” Shaking my head.
He laughed. “They might as well be.” He pointed to a pile of rolls of Astroturf at the other end of the lot. “They’re replacing that stuff with the stuff in the bags. REAL grass is against the law!” He guffawed and the rest of the crew laughed with him.
I guess the Kerrville School District must have all the books, computers, teachers, everything else it needs to teach those kids to balance their checkbooks, read, write and cypher. Got everything it needs to prepare them for life after the nest.
Got $6,000,000 focking dollars lying around to put a new ersatz grass floor on the stadium for the jockstraps to run around on.
