I like to think that I am somewhat green. you know, as in all environmental and what not. And no, not because its trendy.
Ok fine, totally because its trendy.
This dream house that we are building (I drew up my dream plans & we hired an architect to turn them
into real plans & im LOVING the plans!), is so environmentally
friendly you wouldn’t believe it. Its off the grid. As in solar panels & wind power baby. Yes you read right,
im forward thinking.
So sometimes I pat myself on the back with my hippie ways.
Yesterday early evening I had a million errands to run. Well fine, not quite a million, but darn close.
Anyways, as I was leaving our house and just one road over, I noticed in the middle of the road, what looked like
rockwell’s insulated (and fairly pricey–at least in the world of sippy cups) sippy cup lying in the middle of the road.
Our vehicle had straddled it. I eerched to a stop (whilst looking in my rearview mirror for safety of course…err right…)
turned around (picture inching forward, then back, then forward, then back until I had maneuvered the full 180 degrees
like a 14 year old student drive) and drove back.
It was a used Tim Hortons cup. I just growled. I wanted to save the day. Be super mom. Find my son’s random cup
in the middle of a random street using my keen mother intuition. I was nothing more then a scavenger.
I put that puppy in reverse (then forward, then reverse, then forward) until I had inched my way back around
180 degrees and I sped off.
Not a single thought of the little that I left behind. Not a single thought. Did not even cross my mind to pick it up.
I may as well crank my furnace, put all my light bulbs back to the bad kind, find the biggest SUV I can find & do 40 loads of laundry.
I am so ashamed.
