First, some thoughts on plastic grocery bags vs. paper bags vs. reusable and cloth bags. Knowing which is the most responsible choice is less than straightforward.
Second, a smartphone cannot protect you from your dumb friends. Last week a coworker of mine told a series of contradictory lies to leave work early--one of which was that her mother was having a heart attack. (Seriously, what kind of genius invites that kind of karma into their life?) Soon after she was tagged in a Facebook photo getting her swerve on* and enjoying live music at a local bar. Now she is my former coworker. All this connectivity... I bet she regrets checking in as the Mayor of Millertime last Tuesday night.
Third, tomorrow is the Primary Election in Maryland. I will be manning my local polling place for something like 16 hours, including setup and closing chores. So do me a favor, and show up to vote!
* This was a favorite slang phrase for "getting drunk" used by Holly Vial circa 1996. Thinking about this idiom and her makes me smile. I wonder what she is up to these days. What does it mean? Well, it is a drunk driving reference. As drinking would impede your ability to drive without swerving. Drunk driving is, of course, not funny.
