I am a huge believer in chopping up those plastic packaging rings before throwing them into the trash. The last thing I want is a dolphin or turtle or duck caught inside one of the rings. That would weigh heavy on my conscience for a lifetime. So, I always, always cut the rings into tiny pieces.
So, when I opened a bag of lemons this week and looked at the remaining, empty mesh bag I had no idea what to do. How in the world was I going to cut each and every teeny tiny hole in that mesh bag to ensure the safety of all animals worldwide?!? I was stumped. So I started with a simple slice down the side which pretty much flattened the bag into a sheet of plastic mesh. Before I could continue slicing and dicing, I got distracted with ideas of other things I could do with the mesh and I ended up with it wrapped around my face.
This just-so-happened to coincide with a text message from Brad Pitt letting me know that he was on his way home. Perfect! I decided to leave my mask on and scare him when he walked through the front door.
I waited. And waited. And I swear of all the days for me to anxiously await his arrival, this one took the longest and was the most uncomfortable. To pass the time, I texted a photo of myself to my Mom and Seeester:They obviously didn’t “get” my sense of humor.
His statement immediately made me think of the scene in Fried Green Tomatoes when Evelyn wrapped herself in cellophane before her own husband arrived home after work. I don’t know if that qualifies more as “bizarre” or “sexy” but I’m going to find out.
