Let’s talk about responsibility. Responsibility to ourselves, to each other, to Gaia, to NoImpact.wordpress.com. Sure, maybe I shirked my responsibility to this blog post until some much warranted badgering from my sun and my stars, Jamie. But have I shirked my responsibility to our Mother Earth? I don’t know, it’s debatable.
There was that time I sampled ice cream from a tiny baby cup and then didn’t even buy the flavor I sampled even though the ice cream lady recommended it but bought an entirely different one in a big old cup with my spnife nowhere to be seen. Three points. There was that other time that I didn’t learn from my mistakes and went to go get ice cream but couldn’t be bothered to bike to my apartment where my spnife was and just thought ice cream in yet another big old cup was worth it. Two points.
I could have done better but I didn’t and maybe it’ll cost me this competition. I’m trying not to beat myself up over it because when we’re responsible to ourselves we let ourselves make mistakes and have a little bit of ice cream. But who’s comforting those two spoons, cups, and tiny baby cup?
