Greater City Providence

Video: I almost drowned!

This was me walking swimming back to the office after lunch today.

The guy running into the red pick up at the end of the first part… yes, he did have a pot bellied pig under his arm.

  • I was on a quest for brach’s jelly beans (didn’t find any btw) and almost got swept into the seekonk river down by east side market. seriously.

  • The guy with the pig seems to be sprinting out of Amazing Video, which raises some serious questions.

  • Isn’t there a Chinese restaurant there as well? Or am I seriously oblivious and there is no Chinese restaurant there? That would explain the pig perhaps? (just a thought?)

  • The Chinese restaurant closed a couple years ago, and Amazing closed too. They must have known there was a flood coming.
