True Confession

In the morning when I am rushing out the door to get the kids to school on time, I empty my car of the trash that is in there from the day before... and leave it on the garage floor.  To actually throw away a cup, you must first empty it of liquid.  It's worse with a can - you must empty it of liquid (out of that tiny hole the size of a quarter) and put it in the recycling, while popping the tab off to save for fundraisers.  I don't have that kind of time.

So it piles up.  I admit, this is a disgusting, pig-like habit.  But, my desire for timeliness beats out my desire for a clean garage (which is officially Shawn's responsibility anyway, right?).

And, to answer your question, no, I can't go back and throw it away later in the day.  It just always seems like such an ordeal to have to dump the liquid first.  I don't know why.  And, you can't throw the whole kit n' caboodle in the trash - then you're just asking for "trash juice".  Gross.

It's complicated in my brain.  Shut up.

If you look closely at the Sonic cup on the right, you'll see the remains of a Milky Way bar that Lulu was given at a class party.  Yum.  Hungry?

Answer to Friday's mystery pic:  a microscopic view of Velcro.  Cool, huh?  Although, it really, really, really looks to me like a terrible parasite you might contract while visiting tropical climes (or a tapeworm like Amy said).

Well done, Marcy (and Mont over on FB).

Ga-rosssssssse!!! Why don't you just take the cups in at the end of the day. You may need to go back one more time after getting the kids, etc. in, but YOU CAN DO IT! : )

...and no, trash juice is even grosser. You HAVE to dump the liquids out first. I agree wholeheartedly!

It's a family defect...our side. Hal moans and groans about the refuse in our garage all the time. I can live with that.

So glad to know I'm not alone. We have a sink in our garage so I turn all the cans and cups upside down in the sink and leave them there to drain while I sprint off to start the day. Jeff hates this and took no comfort in knowing that your husband suffers the same Garbage in the garage fate.

I cannot imagine why he doesn't take comfort in that, Christy! Doesn't misery love company?!
