Basic Trash-Can Policy
Near freezing temps expected for tomorrow, and maybe a little snow. We shall see.
"Why are you going slow?" Ann asked me not from the back seat long ago, as I was backing out of the driveway. Usually it's a time for proceeding slowly, but at that moment I also didn't want to hit my full trash cans, which I leave next to the curb, near where the driveway means the street.
"I don't want to hit the trash cans," I told her.
"Oh. So it's your policy not to run over the trash cans."
Where did she pick up that turn of phrase? But yes, I had to agree that it's my policy not to run over my own trash cans.
