Yesterday I had the opportunity to look at trucks.  Lots and lots of very big, very long trucks.  I started truck-watching because I noticed a tractor-trailer pulling onto I-70.  It was the longest tractor-trailer I’ve ever seen.  My son and daughter tried valiantly to guess what was on the trailer.  A rocket?  A Polaris missile?  Experimental airplane wings?  I’m sure we’ll never figure out what that truck was carrying.

Then we began to notice all the trucks with unusual loads.  We saw huge pipe-shaped objects.  We saw turquoise blue two-ended tanks, the kind you might store oxygen in.  We saw more Unidentified Trucking Objects than I’d thought possible.

If anyone knows what was on that big trailer on I-70, please end the agony and tell me what it was.
