Your mom knows what's best for you, and the planet!
Hello honey, how are you? Good news. Toilet paper was on sale the other day and I picked up a few cases for you.
You’ll never guess what happened this morning! You remember how I go for a walk every morning and that I am trying to get your father to join me but every time I head for the door he heads for the bathroom?
Well, on today’s walk I was behind someone walking their dog. I think it was some sort of poodle or it may have been part cocker spaniel or terrier, like the one that Mrs. Collins had. You know, the lady with the cataracts who used to live down the street. By the way, she died last year (the dog dear, not Mrs. Collins). Well anyway, as I approached the man I noticed that he had just cleaned up after his dog, which I thought was very responsible. Then he walked over to the storm sewer and threw the pet waste down the drain! Can you believe it? He might as well have thrown it right into the lake! Does he not realize that the storm sewer drains directly into the lake? We get our drinking water from the lake for crying out loud. When I told your father he was outraged and he offered to return the favour on this man’s lawn and we don’t own a dog!
That got us talking about your Grade 7 Science Fair Project. Do you remember the one about the things people let run into the sewer drains like motor oil, anti-freeze, and cigarette butts? You had those jars of water with different pollutants in them and the pictures of those sick fish. Your project was so good honey it should have won the science fair, but that Michaels boy won simply because his father did most of the work.
I have to go now dear but your father says hello. I love you and remember not to sit on cold concrete, they say it causes hemorrhoids.
