Like A Scene From A Dark Comedy...

So today as I was sitting in our town office, during an informal meeting in which were discussing ideas for enhancing our 'Arts & Entertainment District'... A very different scene was playing just outside the door.

It was difficult not to stray from the subject of promoting our small town, new businesses, friendly shopping atmosphere and arts... Whilst in our peripheral vision we could see a homeless woman just outside the door, denuding the town Christmas tree of its sparkly garland and move it to the street sign, where she'd carefully wrap it around the pole. Once she'd finished with that project, she'd shuffle back over to the tree, remove another strand of garland and start over again on another sign. Eventually, she enlisted the help of homeless gentleman (a friend?), who at first, became a co-conspirator in the deconstructing of the tree ornamentation. However, as our meeting progressed, some sort of shift had taken place outside. At some point, the two unlikely elves, altered their strategy and began RE-decorating the town tree.

I'm wondering just how, we can go about marketing that particular brand of small town charm.

Were the Coen brothers filming at the time?

Sounds like a scene from Parks & Recreation
