Divestment: Week 2

Posted on August 27, 2008 by Steve

8/21: First missed day due to last-minute travel arrangements, so I have to cite my plywood/medical device double disposal last week.

8/22: Gabriel García Márquez, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, left on a bench in Fuengirola, Spain.

8/23: Hoyle Classic Games CD ROM left on a trash receptacle in Málaga Airport. It was a waist-high platform with a recessed metal top on which some food wrappers and napkins were conspicuously not exploding.

8/24: Home improvement handbook left by a home inspector seven years ago. Nice guide, but never consulted. Trashed.

8/25: Blue school binder found in basement. Salvaged a tube of 0.5 mm lead from a pocket and trashed.

8/26: Sony Discman portable CD player. Quite scratched up but worked the last time I tried it, years ago. Left in a stairwell with a note reading "free."

8/27: Two packages of souvenir coasters. There are probably enough coasters in our house to decorate every corner of every flat piece of furniture. Trashed.

You're dropping shit like mad, and the highlight of my last Saturday was picking up 2 used books and a CD. I really need to get into the spirit of this thing.
