A strange thing happened to me yesterday…
My washing was hanging up outside to dry. (Nothing strange about that.)
At one point I saw a crow flying away from my balcony. (Nothing strange about that, either.)
Later, I noticed that one of my tops was on the ground so I went out to pick it up. ‘The wind must have blown it off,’ I thought. (Not strange either, right?) I looked for the hanger, but…, where was it? Not on the pole, not on the ground. I looked over the balcony from my fourth floor flat: Nope, it wasn’t down their either. Hmmm… (now it’s starting to get a bit strange, right?!) Anyway, I put it down to my going slightly mad, and forgot about it.
A bit later on, I noticed that a shirt was now on the ground. ‘Oh, it must be really windy,’ I thought. So again, I went out to pick it up. Guess what. Yep, no hanger again. (Now, it’s really starting to get strange, isn’t it?!)
Was a crow actually taking my clothing off the hangers, and then stealing them? Or do I have ninja neighbours who climbed onto my balcony and took them? The thing is, I was actually at home most of the time and sitting on my sofa which looks right out onto the balcony!
Who do YOU reckon is the culprit? I actually think it’s quite funny to lose two hangers in one day, the first time I hang my clothes outside this year. The thing is, I don’t really want to lose hangers every time I do so! What should I do?! Suggestions welcomed!
