All that stuff.

And probably more.

Oh, and no.   That list is probably not what you think it is.  The list above is not a “Bucket List” (thank you, Hollywood, for that little addition to our vernacular) of things I hope to do before I die.


It is, in fact, a list of things I could have done with all the time I’ve spent cutting up these freakin’ things for 30 some-odd years.

Because I am completely obsessed with ensuring there is not. one. single. place where that the tiniest of sea creatures might get caught when I throw it away.

And then when I went to get a picture of these silly “plastic soda rings” (that’s how I looked it up), I learned something.   They biodegrade.  Within 90 days.   So, it’s highly unlikely that all my compulsive slicing and dicing has been worth a damn.  ‘Cause trash spends a good chunk of time lying around dumps before it gets anywhere near our precious oceans.


I’m still cutting them up.

You’re welcome, Flipper.
