It all started after I ate carnitas tacos at a strip mall.
I notice a FB post by my daughter. A photo of my ex-husband buying kind of inflatable plastic water toy from Costco.
I enlarge the photo and see an enormous “Tiki Breeze Raft,” and inflatable island.
“Wow, that’s a ton of landfill plastic in one purchase.”
Seats seven adults with seven cup-holders.
Truth is, I tell myself, I need to practice a little acceptance right now. I’m the one who created this life, where I mind-numbingly have to assimilate the plastic purchasing habits of my ex-husband, who I divorced in 2001, when I left for a woman.
