It was brought to my attention today (being our garbage pickup day) that garbage is a subject that needs addressing, the emptying in particular. I do believe we should stop and appreciate the fact that nice people in colorful trucks actually come by our house and take our garbage away. What I have found regarding garbage is this advice from a late advice columnist, Ann Landers. When asked whose job it was to empty the garbage, the husband, wife, or children, her answer was simple: Whoever finds the trashcan full needs to empty it. Now that is simply a lovely notion, and this way of doing things at our house has mitigated ill feelings and eliminated stress. Lovely!
