You decide to upgrade your favorite Betta to a larger tank because he looks depressed. You will use his prior tank for the new Juvenile Betta sitting in a bowl because your other tank now has shrimp. As for that bowl....

Other version of that walk in the Park:
When you find yourself...asking yourself...if you think they would miss that limb in that bush over there where no one can really see it anyway. I mean it is in a park and all that but really, if they wanted it seen they should have put in in the front of...
Or when you find yourself stopping at a trash dumpster and scrutinizing the tree limb in there...
