It’s big garbage week in my neighborhood, so I’m cleaning out the basement a little.
The new trend, I guess, is to ask yourself if something sparks joy.
The problem is, I’ve owned this really great piece of foam rubber for more than 20 years because seeing it sparks joy and makes me happy that someday I’ll put it to good use.
The truth is, it’s a piece of garbage and I’ve known that truth from the moment I couldn’t bring myself to throw it out more than two decades ago.
Garbage brings me great joy, but so will a clean(er) basement.
I hope this wonderful cushion brings some garbage picker all the joy it has brought me since the 90s.
