I am a huge fan of free. I did work in a recycling center that gave me plenty of access to trash. I also spent some time dumpster diving and dragging free items from the sidewalk to my home.
So…thank you Mimi for the bag of oranges. They are fresh in flavor.I know a chain bookstore that emails cookie coupons for birthdays. Olivine cashed hers in this week.
I even stumbled upon a Pat Mora haiku that sums this girl up.I guess the aquarium isn’t technically free. But having a membership feels pretty darn close. We bypass the line, wander in and out in two hours, stopping to notice new animals in the exhibit. These are starfish.And wave at some of our old, familiar friends.
Then there are also the free random teddy bears that come to a girl who likes to smile. On a visit to a friend in the hospital this past week she found herself being presented with toys to help pass the time.
Yeah we have been busy. Can you tell?
