Lost & Found
Between August 2007 and August 2008, four disembodied feet washed up on the shores of British Columbia. Then another right foot washed up, but that turned out to be a joke (an animal foot in a shoe). But while I was busy paying attention to other things, a couple more feet floated in and now number seven just washed up in Richmond, B.C., on the banks of the Frasier River. This latest model is a left foot, casually clad in a New Balance sneaker, and it might be a match for one of the previous pieces of human flotsam. Or is that jetsam? Until more information comes in about how the feet are entering the river, I'll say 'flotsam'.
