When I was six I was out one spring day playing at the curb. Water was gushing noisily through the sewer. We heard it through the sewer grate. I went inside and found string and a magnet. We lowered the magnet into the sewer to see if we could catch money like fish. We didn't catch anything. Then I went in and got my brother's G.I. Joe doll. We tied the string around his neck and lowered him into the sewer. Then he handed me the string, but it got dropped. Irretrievably gone.

I wonder where that doll is today.
