Stranger Than Fiction

I was out and about, driving along listening to the radio and doing the bobblehead dance. As I was sitting at a stop sign I noticed this blind man resting on his front steps. He had his white and red cane leaning on his leg right next to him. I saw that he had been raking leaves and the rake was leaning up against the porch right beside him.

And then I saw that the rake was also white and red, just like the cane. Obviously, a rake for the blind.

And then with my mathematical mind and powers of deduction and logical reasoning, I thought to myself, "Oh! I bet his family painted that rake white and red for him so he could easily see which one was his in the pile of rakes."
