Bozos and the difference a day makes …

Saturday’s snit is already in the rear view mirror.

Not that there weren’t moments this morning that could have tipped the scales toward snit II.

It was a big bagful this morning. My fuse remained unlit.

It was a big bagful this morning. My fuse remained unlit.

It was too cold – 32F at 6 a.m. – for my liking. (It is spring, isn’t it?) Within 24 hours of the prior day’s curse-a-palooza, the path was again clogged with all manner of junk and trash (but at least I toted the correct bag this morning). The coffee didn’t stay as hot as usual in the brisk air and it was consumed far too early in the walk.

I went about the business is a more civil, stoic manner (there was a substantial drop in the utterance of F-bombs from yesterday’s profanity-laced tirade). Although for the first time ever, slobs were labeled as ‘Bozos,’ a name borrowed from the old clown show that first aired in Chicago (WGN?) a long, long time ago.

So yeah, yesterday is in my past. I suspect, though, that ‘Angry Man’ may seep through from time to time – but hopefully in more manageable proportions.

I have to tip my hat to the makers of Harris Teeter grocery bags - the bags stretch, but rarely break.

About Dave Bradley (260 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
