Topic 7: The Hydrant

“Go outside. Pick a starting spot and direction. Walk 100 steps. Find something from that spot and blog about it.”

This fire hydrant now finds itself a decorative adornment for some typical American family in some typical American suburb. This was not always the case. No, this hydrant once found itself on a busy city corner. Waiting patiently to fulfill its duty and save the citizens  of this great city from the nightmare flames. Day in day out the lonely hydrant would wait, ready and willing, to subdue it’s fiery foe. Well, unfortunately the day of reckoning never came and it became far too unstable to remain so it was auctioned off and sold to the lucky owners. Now it sits still, patient, ineffectual, and completely, utterly, defeated.
