If you talk to my husband he will tell you I am becoming increasing neurotic about what the common population calls "being green". I recycle paper, plastic, and whatever soup cans are made of. I am reading labels and trying to make healthier choices. I am planning a compost pile and a garden.
I am also getting grumpier about the loose way my family and my students use the word "need".
"I need a new game for my DS. I beat this one already."
"I need some new shirts. I don't like my old ones"
"I need" this card...this toy...this THING.....
I hope that I am responding to some enlightenment from God. I am guessing I am really responding to some enlightenment from the impulse buy section in the checkout of walmart. It was there, around Thanksgiving, I found a product that made me realize what a lazy spoiled bunch of people we Americans are. It was one of those "as seen on TV" products. Something designed solely to prevent you from having to bend over and wash your own feet.
Let me repeat...a product so you don't have to BEND OVER AND WASH YOUR FEET.
It is all here in their ad....
