Get-New-Context Theater.

For today's job, I helped dismantle an art store (Dick Blick Art Materials, the former Art Media store, next to downtown Portland's Director Park) that's moved locations. Lots of recycling, lots of trash, so a dumpster was outside.

I tried to throw something into the dumpster, as much like throwing a basketball as I could. But among the many sports I don't play, I don't play basketball. The object didn't make it, and it fell to the side of the dumpster.

"Obviously I'm not a golfer," I said.

(Does anyone really need context?)
