On this particular night I happened to be walking along suspiciously (wary of criminals and sales people as usual), at night, when I noticed a woman standing in a dark alley. Usually this would seem normal because there is nothing strange about a woman standing in a dark alley in a well lit area. But then, I noticed that she wasn't alone. There was something in her hand plus there was a man on the ground with a bag. The man looked like he was coming from a jim or something, dressed in loose clothing.

I got suspicious but continued to walk at my usual pace, minding my own business. Though I noticed woman in question was a bit taller than the man, wore glasses and was dressed like she worked in a bank. As I started to pass the alley and could see more clearly what was going on. The man was searching through the contents of a bag which was on the ground. Mean while the woman was holding what seemed to be a colorful synthetic material made from a wide range of organic polymers such as polyethylene aka plastic.

My guesstimate was indeed correct, the woman was buying DVDs in a dark alley. By the looks of the situation she was not looking for a little fix either - she was buying bulk - enough to start her own mini movie theater. I guess she was planing on staying high for a while. I could tell she was an addict (even from 40 feet away). The telltale signs where obvious; track marks all up her arms, eye glasses, weight gain from eating too much pop corn (with butter) and sitting for long hours in front of a 20 inch television screen. It was late so I just walked on by.
