On What I Do - Part 1

She's my inspiration ... at least for this post.

The pictures below are real.
I took them.

After I realized what I was doing merited disclosure.

Perhaps one of you can help?

BEFORE

(I'd just emptied
the last
of the milk
from
the carton
into a cereal bowl.)

(For my breakfast.)

AFTER, PART 1

(I squished it and folded it,
carefully
squeezing as much of the air
out of the carton
as I could
before twisting the cap back on.)

(My hands like how it feels like the
air
remaining
outside the squished, folded carton
after I've sealed it
wants
to get into the carton.)

(Physics. Cool.)


AFTER, PART 2

(I placed it into the trash can.)

(My brain likes
how
it doesn't take
up
as
much space in the sack.)

You buried the lead again muchacho.
That milk expired April 09, and you poured it on your cereal on May 05!?!?!?! or, had you intended to eat cottage cheese on your cheerios?

And isn't milk by its nature organic?

Of all things Clarice, ask what is its nature?

holy shit.

I do it in a slightly different fashion, but the result is the same.

Egg carton? Rip it in four pieces and nest them.

Hey. I love you. You're perfect ....

How wonderful of you not to leave one drop and place it back into the fridge like some people might think of doing! Just meandering through the blog world and I stumbled upon yours! How refreshing it is to find a blog which isn't spam and is well written and charming! Many kudos to you!

You have no idea. Garrett will rip you to shreds by the time you come back to visit.

Garrett:
Your skills extend far beyond law. Congrats. However, there is one thing to be concerned about in this picture... you don't recycle?

Shame on you.

Can cardboard milk cartons be recycled? I mean without consuming more energy than creating a new cardboard milk carton requires? I mean without consuming more energy than creating a new cardboard milk carton requires including the energy consumed in moving the used cardboard milk carton from my front lawn to the place where it gets recycled and then on to the place where the recycled cardboard milk carton gets filled with milk again?

Seriously?

Well, that's a good question. Lets first find out how much energy it takes to make a new cardboard milk carton vs a used cardboard milk carton.

I understand that it takes some energy to recycle disposed products. However, it does take energy to make new products of the same kind.

If it took more energy to recycle product, wouldn't that be counterproductive? I mean, why would anyone, especially government allow such a counterproductiveness?

Just to create jobs?

That makes sense though.

I would really love to know what university Garrett attended. BUT ONLY AFTER YOUR READING. I don't want to know anything about you prior. Seriously. Otherwise it messes me up.
