I have always liked the scene in Jaws where they open a shark belly and show the contents — a soda can and a license plate — as a way of showing that sharks are indescriminate eaters. I have taken from my car a box with stuff that must be sorted carefully but contains a lot of trash, including at least two banana peels. OK, tissues still in the plastic package. Keep those. Bottle of Nestle Pure Life Water? Hmmm, doesn’t seem so pure now among the garbage. Sample size toothpaste from the dentist — all wrapped up. Keep that. One tiny black glove and one big red glove. That’s a pair somewhere in the world…What else is in the box? Stay tuned.
