Meezer Monday: Smooth Criminal
I just can’t get enough of Dusty, the naughty snowshoe (he counts as a meezer, doesn’t he?) who has stolen 600 items, including bathing suits, stuffed animals, underwear and brazeers, from his neighbors’ backyards over the past year. If he didn’t have four paws and a tail he’d probably be locked up by now, but it’s nothing but charming if you ask me. Here he is mid-heist.
So what can a cat do with a stuffed dinosaur or a pair of tighty whities? Well, I’m not the best person to answer that question, as Dusty’s loot is actually a lot more practical—and re-sellable, for that matter—than anything I’ve kind-of stolen in my entire life.
That list encompasses:
- a baby blue balloon (uninflated), lifted from a general store on Shelter Island when I was 5
- a pair of false eyelashes from a Connecticut CVS while in college (OK, I did get a lot of use out of them)
- a box full of plastic 18-inch blue-and-white seahorses from Oriental Trading Company. I paid for 3 and they sent me 3 dozen by mistake.
If I think of anything else I’ll add it to the post. Until then, here’s some music to pilfer by.
