Running of the Bulls, Tour de France, and Other Moving Events

Dear Kid,

All sorts of moving sporting events are happening. And by “moving” I mean motion not e-motion.

The bulls have started running in Pamploma. This is possibly one of the stupidest events in the history of stupid events. I am not referring to the intelligence level of the bulls. The running of the bulls lasts for a week and sends a lot of people to the hospital.

The Tour de France has started. In France. This is possibly one of the dopiest events in the history of dopy events. And by “dopy” I really mean dope-ed. Yesterday there was a huge crash forcing a number of riders (including the guy wearing the yellow jersey) out of the race. The Tour last 21 days and generally doesn’t send this many people to the hospital this early in the event.

The World Cup is moving out of Canada now that the women have agreed that the USA women are the best. Now eyes are being cast in this direction in preparation for the All Star game next week. Since the entire world was watching, a violent fight broke out on Fountain Square on the 4th. Lovely. Usually the 4th of July doesn’t send this many people to the hospital for non-fireworks related injuries.

Makes you want to vote for the bulls.

Love, Mom

Why Toilet Paper is Causing Massive Pollution

Dear Kid,

We are halfway through the year. Happy half birthday 2015! Happy almost birthday USA! Happy Birthday Canada (Yes, it’s Canada Day)!

Yet, on a day full of happy, I am still thinking about the lady I saw yesterday.

I went to the restroom at the end of the day (the better to not walk into the gym with my legs crossed yelling “I’ll be right back to show you my ID!”). There was a lady in there I’d never seen before who was changing the toilet paper rolls.

This is the correct way to install toilet paper. I learned this from Ann Landers so it must be true. DearKidLoveMom.comPutting in new rolls of tp is not a bad thing.

She said to me, “I guess we need someone to come up and do this midday, too.”

I didn’t know how to respond to that, so I smiled and washed my hands.

Then she threw out the not-yet-empty rolls of toilet paper.

I didn’t know what to say to that either, so I dried my hands.

I’m guessing from her comment that (maybe) she’s with the cleaning crew. Maybe not since there was no evidence of cleaning stuff with her and it was a bit early for that.

The rolls that she threw out still had (in my professional opinion) 3 average tp uses on them.

I would have understood (and applauded) her changing out the rolls so there was a full roll on the rod and putting the not-quite-done ones on top.

I would have understood (although perhaps not applauded) if she’d taken the rolls to recycling.

I would even have understood (although definitely not applauded) if she’d taken away the offending run down rolls to use in the privacy of her own home.

But to throw them out?

It has been scientifically proven that the paper on the inside of the toilet paper roll is no less effective than the tp at the outside of the roll.

And we wonder where pollution comes from.

Love, Mom
