I'm about to say something truly shocking - so be prepared.
Books can be thrown away. They fit beautifully in most trash cans and in any dumpster.
Today's gift from the library gods was 3 boxes full of donated books. All of them Chilton auto repair manuals that looked 25 years old and appeared to have been sitting in someone's garage all that time.
I'm talking filthy, black pages. Dirty, dirty, dirty. Hazardous waste material.
You know what I did? Put them on a cart, wheeled them out to the dumpster and tossed them.
Then washed my hands a la Lady MacBeth.
I really need to get a digital camera so I can share this sort of stuff with the general Blog World. My words really do not do justice to some of the stuff that people try to donate to us. And the sad thing is - I can't turn them away. It really is admirable that they want to help the library, and it's my job to encourage that. But honestly people - use a little common sense, OK?
In other news, I got an e-mail this morning from my older sister who was bored at work. She told me that Mom said my blog has been "funny" lately.
See, my Mom thinks I'm cool!
