Covert Operation

Shhhh. Don't tell anyone. I did a bad, bad thing.

Monday morning, before my folks got back from a weekend trip, I borrowed their van, filled it with junk my sister left in my garage, and took it to the metal recyclers.

If Deb asks about it, I won't lie—I'll just play dumb. "You mean that stuff you left here FIVE YEARS AGO? Why, I don't have any idea what happened to that."

And I don't. Heaven only knows what it became after it was smashed into a cube of scrap metal, smelted and recycled. Only thing I know for sure is that I can open my car doors without bumping into it.

You did a good, good thing!


Life's too short to hold other people's junk!!

Happy dancing over here! You go!

Hmmm. And you're quite sure she doesn't read your blog?

You absolutely did the right thing. A year, tops, is the time we're required to store a family member's crap.
