On the drive home today, I saw some lady throw a bottle and several wrappers out of her car window. She didn’t even care! Why should she? Misdemeanor Technically, littering is illegal — it carries a fine and possible jail time — but who is going to catch her? I’m sure as heck not going… Read More Catch Me if You Can
Today at lunch, someone asked if we had to choose, would we choose extreme heat or extreme cold? I mean, ideally, we’d have neither, but I said I would choose extreme cold.
