Nothing more cheerful than waking up and seeing 3 of your hubcaps missing off your tires. I drive a simple corolla so I'm not sure what the appeal or value my scratched hubcap would be worth to someone, but hey I live in a big city and park on the big city streets of Los Feliz. so yeah.
So as I drove off in my one hubcapped car I just happened to notice a single hubcap leaning up against a tree down the street. I pulled into a driveway to check and it was one of mine! Confused, yet energized by this find I walked up and down my block hoping that these hubcap bandidos dumped them all in a rush to leave the scene.
Then I found another one a few houses down and traveled up another block expecting to be reunited with Sammy, my lost, cold and frighten hubcap. "Sammy! Sammy!" I called out into the street, well truthfully just in my head but sadly I didn't find the last one. Even worse I realized that one popped off on the drive home from work.
Typical, I thought.
