I bought a copy of RedEye yesterday

That’s right, I actually paid 25 cents for Tribune Jr., aka News for Dummies.

The situation was this: I was walking Sportoboy and he did something I did not expect him to do. That is, I was unprepared — and so did not have the customary plastic bag in my back pocket for scoopage purposes.

Fortunately, Sporto did his business not too far from a RedEye box — you know, the obnoxious red boxes with the big ball on top; I guess that’s an eye, I don’t know.

The cover of the tabloid suited my scoopage purposes just fine, thank you very much. RedEye may not be better than looking out the window, but it’s better than getting yelled at by an angry neighbor.
