Watching a neighbor walk her dog. The dog squats. Neighbor picks up the pile. While the neighbor is bagging it, dog squats again a few feet away. This time neighbor ignores it.
1) Maybe neighbor is out of bags?
2) Is neighbor merely going through the motions — i.e., by picking up first pile she satisfies her public obligation and thus may ignore the second pile?
3) Neighbor is doing the best she can in an admirable attempt at turd triage?
4) All of the above?
Zen bonus question: If a dog shits in the grass and no one steps in it, did it really happen?
