I took the lost thing over to Pete's place. Pete has an opinion on just about everything. 'Cool,' he said. 'I'm trying to find out who owns it,' I told him. 'I dunno man,' said Pete. 'It's pretty wierd. Maybe it doesn't belong to anyone. Maybe it doesn't come from anywhere. Some things are like that...' He paused for dramatic effect, '...just plain lost.'
