Today’s Plan.

Okay.  So the Olympics are coming. I can’t stop that. Also, all the Mazda MPVs belonging to the Co-Op are conking out. The catalyitc converters are going. The Broadway Skytrain cargo van belched out sweet-smelling steam when I drove it last week.

“Sam,” I asked, “When steam smells sweet, it’s a radiator problem, right?”

“Right. Is the heating gauge redlining?”

“Not yet.”

“You’d better bring it back.”

I love the MPVs.  Don’t get me wrong. But if the repairs cost more than they’re worth, we need to have another plan.

Here’s my plan: Gut them. Install small chemical toilets and tiers for bunk beds.

Rent them as cheap condos for the Olympics.

Hey, presto! A way to profit from our loss, and a way for tourists who are not millionaires to find a place to sleep during the games.

    Dood! You are made of brilliant! And the Captcha says “couples scoped”, so I’m thinking there’s already interest in this…

    Hmm, I am going to have to get some investors in on this…

    They’re closing a shelter here and several SROs have been shut down. Maybe that’s the answer to the homeless issues.

    Bingo, Beth! See? It’s all about working with that you have.
