Here’s a Coronavirus confession. Even though I’m trying my best to stay at home, wash my hands frequently and wear a mask when I do go out in public spaces, I still stop when I see a “free” box on the sidewalk. And sometimes I bring things home.
I resist more than I used to. If anything, I have two boxes full of things that are ready for future Garage Sale/donation/BUNZ trade. I should be putting things out on the sidemart, not picking up sidewalk finds.
And of all the things I vowed to never glean anymore used shoes. Yet here I am, with a pair of Birkenstocks that I found on someone’s lawn. Birks are irresistible to me, viruses be damned.
