This morning as I was having a “super sexy” hacking and coughing fit over the bathroom sink, I managed to hack up a load of grey phlegm. Grey! I don’t smoke, what the hell is wrong with me?So I looked it up and apparently it can be caused from swallowing too much dust. More than likely the same dust that has been collecting in my house since I was too sick to clean. So, it looks like I’m going to have to start dusting and vacuuming again. Oh joy!
While throwing out dirty paper towels and running the vacuum isn’t the most Earth Day friendly activities I could be doing, there are other things I am doing to celebrate this important day. Such as:
-Getting rid of gunk in the back of the fridge. All those “science projects” are on their way out.
-Unplugging some electronics
-Going for a nice walk to the doggy park
-Getting our long awaited ‘composter’ started
Of course, these will go along with my other daily green activities like recycling, turning off lights, reducing the thermostat if its too warm, cleaning up after Selena, reducing water consumption by not letting the water run and stopping drips, etc.
I hate people that complain about Earth Day and Hour. These curmedgons bitch and moan that its just a ‘trend’ and claim that people only observe them on their annointed time and then the rest of the year resume their dirty habits. Well maybe that is true for some, but many take these events seriously and try to continue their greener habits daily. There meant to raise awareness about pollution and overconsumption and they do.
These events are not about becoming crazy hippies who live in weird smelling communes, its about saving our planet or at least slowing down its destruction. Long overdue if you ask me!
