3rd Sunday

3rd Sunday

I always believe that to be the best, you have to smell like the best, dress like the best, act like the best. When you throw your trash in the garbage can, it has to be better than anybody else who ever threw trash in the garbage can.
-Lil Wayne

Narratives


Observations: This third Sunday, we did more than take out the overflowing trash from the previous nights parties, we saved lives (possibly). Observe. In the trash: a fractured mirror and a paper plate. The plate was harmless enough, although paper cuts can be intense, but in the incorrect receptacle. The mirror, on the other hand, was the worst safety hazard I have yet seen in my extensive seven months of trashing. Had not the Sunday team carefully removed the razor sharp fragments, who knows what harm may have befallen the unsuspecting student. Luckily, we are highly trained at removing waste from bins, and crisis was averted. 

Interpretation: Awestruck by his/her own magnificent appearance, a student drifted closer to the mirror to better examine his/her countenance. Too close. The mirror shattered, leaving the student with only a spider-web view. This was not good enough for the student who needed to see his/her face in its full glory. The old mirror was discarded and the student bought a bigger one. Also, someone now has seven years bad luck.     

Comments:
  • Paper towels make up a large portion of compostable waste thrown in the wrong receptacle. Throw away paper towels while still in the bath room!
  • Ray Bradbury said, "ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures." Sometimes, however, the treasures are in the trash. Sometimes, the trash is the treasure.
