One Man's Trash
by Elwood Farklesnark
Had Main Street been passable, Tom Mendicant would never have become a millionaire. Forced to drive down the alley behind the Archester mansion was the luckiest day of his life. Tom was drawn to the glint of the sun's reflection from a mirror that had been placed in the dumpster. Stopping to take a look, he decided that the mirror would be a perfect addition to his kitschy collection of Depression-era memorabilia.
It was six months before he knew the true value of his dumpster find. His life changed in ways he could never imagine.
Read along about the miraculous changes that mirror brought to Tom's own reflection - and his life. Who knows? It may just make you stop and pick up a bright and shiny object the next time you pass a dumpster.
