I love this country for many reasons. The opportunities, the passion, the humor, the drama, the nonsense, the creativity, New York, a lot of reasons...aaand the fact that America is the only place where you will find a polished/bedazzled fire hydrant. I almost stepped out of the car to investigate. This bad boy was better polished than most peoples teeth. Seriously, it's cleaner than some peoples bathrooms. You may think I'm insane for even noticing this, but there was no way of not noticing it. It almost blinded me. If you look carefully you actually see how the sun reflects on the shinyness of the fire hydrant. I believe this may have been done intentionally.
