Nine Year Limbo
In August 2009, in the wake of the economic downturn, my friend Joe the Plumber lost the house he was staying in and asked to store a bulky Golds-Gym weight lifting machine on the floor of my garage. This morning, nine homeless years later, after having lost or having had stolen so many of his other possessions along the way, and after finally having got a new place following years of living in his van, and camping beside the American River after the police towed the van for failure-to-register, Joe finally reclaimed the dusty thing. Let no one stand between a man and his exercise machine!
