Well, So Much for the Environment

Last week, Chef was going to make a pasta dish for dinner, but we were out of pasta.  We still had some cash in the grocery envelope, so I hopped on my bike and rode to the Dollar Store to get a box of spaghetti and a gallon of milk.

The clerk rang up my items and put the box of spaghetti in a bag.  “Oh, I don’t need a bag for that,” I said.

“All right,” he responded.  And he tossed the bag in the trash.



About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
