Garbage In Garbage Out

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

A small tear came to the edge of my eye as I looked out across the watery abyss. Whether it was due to sadness of loss or to simply too much garbage smelling up the land and filling the air with particles, I don’t know, but still there was a tear.

The cart caught my attention most. Uncle Milty had had one before he disappeared and here was one half-way buried in the mud. Could he have mistaken this place, filled with nearly everything for his local discount store, with the same garbage? Perhaps. Would we ever know? Doubtfully uncertain

    Scott, Humorous story with a touch of sadness. Poor Uncle Milty. That beach must be a mess. Sounds like the store isn’t much better. 🙂

      As someone else mentioned…perhaps, a bit of satire on our stores of today.
      I just liked the image.

    Funny, really, that the beach would be so covered with random garbage that Uncle Mitty thought it might be the local store. What a wonderfully crazy thought. Well done.

    Poor uncle Milty! One can only hope he’s enjoying a grocery store somewhere warm and safe.

    I second Janet’s suggestions; I was going to recommend the same. 🙂

    Dear Scott,

    Sounds like poor Uncle Milty was confused. That must be some heap o’ garbage. Janet’s suggestion makes sense to me.

    Shalom,

    Scott, an intriguingly sly comment on litter and garbage. I think that the addition of two commas would make what seems to me to be the key sentence a bit clearer. “Could he have mistaken this place, filled with nearly everything, for his local discount store with the same garbage?” I had to read this several times before really seeing what it said. Might be just me, of course. What say you?
