Other new plastic purchased this week? Nothing that I can think of.
I had another appointment with my doctor. This time, I didn’t use the plastic sheet that was offered. I should have brought the one I saved from last time , but I didn’t think of it until I’d left the house. So instead, I just held my pants across my lap until the doctor arrived and then explained to her that I didn’t see any need to waste the plastic. She seemed a little surprised, but “got it.” (Hopefully, there won’t be too much more of this personal stuff to share with you!)
That’s it for the week. Hey, Radical Garbage Man. If you’re reading this, can you please send me an e-mail? (My e-mail address is in my profile.) I have some questions to ask about recycling tetra paks, and since you’re in the waste management business, I’m hoping you can help me out.
