Have you noticed that there is a new morality out there? Morals have nothing to do with being pro-family, pro-marriage, or pro-life, anymore. Some people will even label you as intolerant, old-fashioned, or hateful if you try to defend what you believe in. Instead, they believe that if you drive a big car, use regular light bulbs, have more than 1.5 children, and don't recycle everything, then you are a selfish, evil person.
I am mostly evil. I drive a mini van, I hate these bulbs, and I have 3 kids, but I hope I can redeem myself with my recycling efforts. I have recently taken recycling to a whole new level: I now recycle Marcus' breakfast cereal.
Marcus likes to have a full bowl of cereal every morning with no milk, but he only eats a few bites of it. I tried giving him smaller portions, but then he thinks he is being ripped off and makes a fuss. So lately, after he walks away from the table, I put his cereal in a plastic container. The next morning I pour it into his bowl, he takes a few bites and I save it. I feel this is a win-win situation. I am saving a lot of money on breakfast cereal, he is none the wiser, and most importantly, I am recycling!
I should win an award like "Super-Mom-Recycler" or something.
