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.
