Before we get to the big issues this morning, letâ€™s pause for a moment and marvel at this breakfast:
Oh yeaaaah. Thatâ€™s a triple stack Grilled Banana Sandwich. A triple stack because I was at the end of my loaf of bread and two pieces were just too tiny for breakfast.
So, so good. I really do think GBS are my favorite breakfast of all time. But, onto more pressing mattersâ€¦
A Very â€˜Urgentâ€™ Debate
The Husband and I have been debating a certain smelly topic for years, and Iâ€™m like YOU to be the tiebreaker.
This debate relates to dog poop. Yes, dog poop.
Our little dogs create a lot of poop. In fact, you could set your watch by Maggieâ€™s poops (8 AM, 5 PM, 9 PM). And since we donâ€™t have a yard, we walk our dogs down public streets, which means that we pick up their poops with plastic bags.
Anyway â€“ I have this thing about carrying around poop bags. I hate it. I donâ€™t mind picking it up, but I want the bag out of my hand as quickly as possible.
Enter: other peopleâ€™s trash cans.
Hereâ€™s the debate: If youâ€™re walking your dog on a public street and come across a neighborâ€™s trash can that has been set out on the curb for trash day, is it OK to put your dogâ€™s poop inside another personâ€™s trash can? ALSO – does your answer change depending on whether the trash has already been picked up? (I only do it if the trash hasnâ€™t been picked up yet.)
The Husband says it is NEVER acceptable to put doggie poop in someone elseâ€™s trash, and I say, â€œWho cares?! Itâ€™s a trash can and the poop is in a sealed plastic bag.â€
Please settle this marital debate! What should we do with our doggie do-do?
