: barrio leaders have recommended that we sell
: more cans and recycle women clothing
Yes, that is right. The barrio leaders recommeds that we sell more cans and recycle women clothing.
On south end of the barrio hood, the poorest part of the barrio are homeless men and women. The men play a game called "penny on the line". Each man puts a penny into the pot to start the game. They draw a 2-feet by 2-feet square as a starting point and about 10 feet farther up they draw a horizontal chalk line where the penny will land. Each man takes turns in throwing his penny towards the chalk line. The penny closer the chalk line wins the pot. This is done to pass the time while they can't find a handy man job. The men are doing ok so far.
But, the women is a different story. They collects empty cans from the trash-cans in south barrio hood. The women are willing to trade their empty cans for recycle women clothings. That's what they told the barrio leaders and that is a win and win situation. We collect empty cans and you give us recycle clothings.
What are these women up to? Once they get enough clothings, they are planning to open a recycle store in the barrio hood. They are calling it "The Second Hand Clothing Treasure" store. These homeless women are planning to go in business to help the economy criss. Any homeless woman can join as long they can collect certain amount of empty cans from the barrio hood or local business dump-trash bins.
There you have it. Believe or not. You be the judge.
