The simplicity of my day to day.
This is where I write my thoughts, feelings and my daily trials, tribulations and happy things
|Category 1: If cars were banned, would you ride a horse or a bike or something else?
My husband and I are visiting Cairns in Queensland at the moment. Walking is proving a little challenging owing to a hip issue. As we are lacking transport of our own my attention has been drawn to beautiful little e-scooters for hire. My more cautious other half strongly advised me against such folly as it’s been many years since I’ve balanced on anything with two wheels. We were discussing my options on the street where these shiny purple vehicles were calling my name , when a large fellow swiped his credit card , put on the helmet and told me to watch him, it would be easy. I said I’d watch his progression down the road and if he could, then so could I. Needless to say he travelled about 50 metres before falling off the kerb into the road. Hubby was pleased to have been proved right and feeling rather disgruntled I continued on our slow walk around the city. So my answer to the prompt’s question is an e-scooter.
Category 2: What are you doing to save the environment from overuse, pollution, or affecting the climate?
I am great at recycling. I sort out plastics from glass, green glass from brown, and cardboard and paper. Until recently our local supermarkets received all their soft plastics back to the store. Bread wrappers, biscuit packets etc, all could be recycled. However apparently there is no use for this type of plastic anymore. Now each time I throw a biscuit or bread wrapper in to landfill my guilt knows no bounds.
Category 3: Monkeys are known to throw stuff. What is the grossest thing you have ever thrown or gotten on your hands and tried to shake off? Optionally augment your entry with why it happened, who or what you threw it at, and if there was retaliation.
Like most women who have experienced motherhood I have to inform you there’s nothing grosser than human waste. For several years or probably more we get more sh..t on our hands than we could measure.
I can’t say I’ve ever thrown it back.
