Of coffee grounds.
Almost a good start for a Dr. Seuss book.
I’m pretty sure that nobody cares about some yahoo in Michigan picking up free used coffee grounds for his compost pile. But the thing is, there’s a small possibility that someone is just waking up on a Saturday, clicking through blogs with his morning coffee, and there’s a new opening for a Dr. Seuss book or something. Isn’t Dr. Seuss dead?
Another sentence or two and he’s reading about free coffee grounds and free shredded leaves converting themselves into free groceries. It’s morning; coffee’s just kicking in. Isn’t it possible that even though he immediately forgets about the dork who thinks people want to hear about his free garbage, something sparks for a guy who ends up getting his own
Of coffee grounds
And has the best garden ever?
I was thinking about this on my way home from Starbucks. It’s expensive stuff, coffee. I buy unused grounds at the grocery; I know. But imagine all the money all those folks at all those Starbucks paid for all those grounds to be made into all those cups of coffee.
And then imagine all those expensive coffee grounds being plopped into a huge, expensive garbage truck by a company who pays guys to dump crap at an expensive dump site into a pile that is basically nothing but a pile.
Maybe somebody who’s never thought about piles reads this with his morning coffee and decides to save his own 60 pounds of coffee grounds from the silly universe of expensive piles.
