Today I threw out: this scrap of wax paper stuck to the bottom of a stick of butter.
I also threw out: this photograph.
A very nice relative printed out some photos of me and my son. This one was not the best angle for either of us. Just look at us! I look like George Washington, he looks like Abe Lincoln, and we are facing in totally different directions. Also his eyes are closed. Could this trash have been avoided? Yes, just not by me. It's hard to say, "thanks but no thanks" to a thoughtful gesture like this.
