A basketball for a baby? Fair trade? That's what the roommate and I just witnessed. Literally, these two girls were hanging out in the middle of the street, in the part where the gate to the neighborhood is. It's not near anybody's front door. One girl had a baby on her hip. Soon enough, a boy with a backwards baseball cap walked out of a row of houses nearby and bounced his basketball on over to the girls. He took the baby, left the basketball, and went back into the house. Then, he came out about ten minutes later, gave back the baby, and took his basketball back. He proceeded to bounce the ball obnoxiously for a few minutes, then headed home...minus baby. Strange.
