There is a small, almost unnoticed phenomena in the streets of England. It defies explanation. When I first noticed it, I thought I was imagining it. When I asked my friends, they said they'd never seen it. I kept on seeing discarded red elastic bands in the street. I saw them everywhere. Or, was it just one elastic band that I kept on seeing. Perhaps it was following me.
I consulted my girlfriend on the subject and she concluded that I was imagining it. I felt I had something to prove, so I started collecting them. After just a day I had ten and was able to prove that I wasn't imagining anything. I'd made my point, but I felt compelled to keep collecting them.
My collection grew and grew, and so did my curiosity into where they came from. No one had an answer. I entertained many strange theories, until one day I discovered the truth.
In the interest of suspense I'm going to keep that a secret for now. Where do you think all the red elastic bands come from?
