Unclear on the concept


This morning on my 5 mile trot through Strawberry Hill, I cut through an alleyway and sitting, crumpled up, on top of a garbage can was one of the ubiquitous re-use able green bags that EVERYONE should be using by now instead of plastic bags (if you are not using these, I am giving you the hairy eyeball right now!). Someone at this household was not very clear on the concept of "re-use able bags", it means you are not supposed to throw them away people!! This is not rocket science! So lucky me, I snagged it and added it to my collection of 20 billion. I use them for everything... groceries, carrying my lunch, carrying my running crap, carrying my muddy shoes.. about the only thing they can't be used for is picking up dog shit. In all seriousness if you aren't using these yet, please, please pick a few up, throw them in your car and use them. If you throw 2 in the backseat and leave them alone for awhile they will get all sorts of cuddly and the next thing you know, you'll have your own herd of 'em. This has been your friendly save the earth message for today. Enjoy today because tomorrow I will be not so friendly and will be discussing runners that throw their GU wrappers on the trails.

gu wrappers? people are lazy.

i have calico bags (canvas). they're much better than plastic. i don't know why people love the plastic bag so much. what gets me is when i see someone with a plastic bag and one item. get real. what is the point of an opposable thumb?

Believe me, I *heart* my "re-use" brown bags. I hate when I had to throw away those plastic bags in the past. A huge waste! This is a huge disposal nation!

Good for you, we use those bags too.

BTW, that's cool that you played hockey too, not sure I ever played against you, I used to play for the Sharks when they were a C team, mostly at Ice Sports though but the last year was at Pepsi. Who did you play with?

Hope to meet you out on a trail run someday, got a marathon next week, but after that I'm going try to get on the trails more.
