I'm guessing it started off something like this:
"Honey, you've really got to do something about the leaves piling up outside."
(Which usually means, either put them in bags for the garbage men to take away, or find out when it's "leaf day" in your town, or mulch them... typically it does not mean what I saw on my way home today)....
There he was, somebody's husband, who had diligently folded down the seats in their Volvo wagon, covered the inside of the car with a blue tarp and was using a giant snow shovel to fill the car up with the leaves that were in a pile in front of his house.
Where exactly was he planning on taking them? Who knows!
I guess he should get points for knowing where a tarp was. Hmpf.
