I was rather confused last night as I ran home. It was just after 11:30pm and as I ran down beacon hill, i noticed a line of police motorcycles turning the corner from charles street. I had seen this before, in fact, rather recently. The last time it turned out to be a bus full of the LA Lakers.
This time, I immediately thought, ooh, who's famous and in town? Dick Cheney's supposed to be around, but that's not until the fourth, it was only the second of July. The mystery grew as I wondered what I'd see turning the corner. To my surprise, two Budget Rent-A-Truck box trucks rolled up beacon street. Why on earth do two budget trucks need a police escort? Dangerous top secret military weapons? Good idea to go undercover with the trucks.... except, the police escort kind of blows your cover.
For the life of me, i can't figure out what was in those trucks. If it was important government stuff, why not use government or military trucks to transport it? As if the country isn't in enough debt, let's spend money on rent-a-trucks... plus, it was Budget. everyone knows the government is never on budget.
