| Today I join my fellow bloggers in
"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
But I digress from my purpose - to share what I give up for slicing. Newspapers are my final sacrifice laid on the slicing altar. I know, most of you gave up newspapers years ago, but I still love a bit of time with the paper each day. My husband reads the news on his i-Pad, so the papers are just for me. It's not unusual for me to get behind a bit, even without slicing. However, this week, I hadn't even stopped to take the paper out of the plastic sleeve. I dropped each day's news on the front rug and planned a great picture of the newspaper pile to accompany this slice. When I went downstairs this morning, I discovered that my pile of papers was gone. Yesterday was trash day, and I'm sure my husband thought he was being helpful (not) when he put them in the recycling. He knows I love to read the newspaper even if it's old. However, one part of me is glad, if only he hadn't gotten rid of Sunday's paper. There are some parts of it that I read religiously (travel, NYT magazine, book review), but not this week. I think I better head downstairs now to stash Friday's paper in a safe place (no time to read it before an evening commitment)!
