A Little Creepy

I write a lot about how unique NOLA is, but there is another side of this city. Sometimes, it's a little creepy.

What do I mean? I mean the WTC. NOLA's World Trade Center was the first in the world. It's an impressive building.

Unfortunately, the WTC has run to disrepair. It's closed, no tenants, waiting for its future to come. Except...

When there's a light on.

A single light on.
Who turned it on? How'd they get up there? Why is there a light on up there????? How is there a light on up there????

Then, there's the building next to ours. Most of the building is empty ~ I would say abandoned, but it's not quite. Just close. There are still three apartments that are occupied: Ironing Guy; The Couch Couple; and The Other Apartment. Then, there is...the other other apartment. Lights are never on. It doesn't appear to be furnished. But some mornings, the coffee mug is there. Some mornings, the coffee mug is steaming. Some mornings the coffee mug is gone.

Has the Once-ler moved in next door to us?

I'm thinking yes.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you a little creeped out ~ and coffee.
