Dirty Dave has been a little tough to take lately. Around a week ago, I received a phone call from a production studio in California. They work for a television program called “Taboo,” which is part of the Nat Geo network. ”We’re doing a special on jobs that nobody in their right mind would want to do,” the voice on the other end told me. “We’d like to feature DuAll on our show.”
Dirty Dave’s eyes lit up. “I’m gonna be a star,” the guru of garbage said. And he well might be. There will be a crew with us for the next couple of days, documenting DuAll as we clean out a house that is full of animal waste and that features a sewer backup that exploded out of a basement toilet. Just the job for Dirty Dave.
“Pete, I want you to walk me down the red carpet,” he said. I doubt it’ll reach such elegant extremes. I also doubt that if Dirty Dave actually were on a red carpet, he’d want me as his arm candy. Regardless, he’ll have to move into a bigger office now in order to accommodate his newly swollen head. He’s on top of the world. At least in the world of garbage.
