I decided to clean out my refrigerator, empty all the mysterious bottles on the top shelf, rinse them, then put them in the dishwasher and recycle them. Yes, this is the first time I have completely emptied the fridge in a decade.
A number of knotty questions arise. Is there a god? Does he believe in recycling, and if so, what state does he live in?
Chicago is very strict about what you can compost. No meat, fish, or things with seeds because they attract insects. (That last rule may be one of my neighbor’s special rules.) If God lives in California, he is more flexible about recycling and composting.
Then there is the problem of the old food in the bottles. Should you put that into the disposal which sends them to our water system or what? I’m sure Sylvia’s pals have thoughts. No, Syl is not involved in cleaning out the fridge. That’s one of her rules.
