Brennan Low walks along Glacier Highway on Monday while wearing a beanbag chair on his head. Low explained that earlier that morning he had been wearing gloves as he walked to work. But, as his hands grew overly warm, he took the gloves off and stuffed them into his jacket pockets. Upon arriving at work, he saw that he had lost one of the items. He felt the loss keenly all day, he said. After work, as he retraced his path, seeking always the lost glove, he spotted a blue beanbag chair in the window of the Salvation Army store. He bought the chair, thinking that it might cheer him up and help him get over his loss. And as he continued on his quest, he remembered that there were papers he wanted to read. And so it came to pass that, in order to free his hands, he hung the blue beanbag chair from his head. At press time, the glove was still at large.
