Oscar the Grouch Would Like the Idea

Last Thursday I was walking with Robert (8) and some of the younger kids around our neighborhood. We were helping Robert with his paper route. It was also trash day and Robert and I were admiring some new trashcans that a neighbor had and comparing them to our old lousy ones.

A little bit later…

Robert “Dad, if we get new trashcans, we should wash out all our old ones with soap, then put a blanket in them and give them to homeless people”.

Me “I don’t know if the homeless people would appreciate that”.

Robert “Well it’s better than nothing which is what they’ve got now”

Ok then
