What day comes after Tuesday?
Monday… Tuesday…. TRASH DAY!
For unknown reasons, I can not retain that WEDNESDAY is trash day.
So here’s what’s happening:
Yesterday was Wednesday. And like every morning, we do the Stock Market Update.
After that, I’m listening to “Coach T” doing the Fundamentals Call for our Mastermind Members while I’m trading.
And then it happens:
I hear a rumbling. And the hissing of hydraulic lifts.
It’s the sound of a big truck.
The GARBAGE Truck!
In horror, I realize that I FORGOT to set out the trash cans!
So I’m storming down the stairs, run into the kitchen, grab the trash bag that definitely wants a ride in this garbage truck, and I run outside.
But it’s too late.
The garbage men are already halfway down the street.
I’m waving at them – frantically.
And I have freakishly long arms, so they MUST see me.
I’m sure they do. I bet they say to each other:
“Look at this dude. He forgot to set out the trash cans again. What an idiot.”
And they keep driving.
So here I am, standing in the middle of the street, trash bag in hand, and…
An evil thought is crossing my mind
It’s very bad. I don’t know if I should even say it out loud.
Ok, confession time:
While I’m standing there with my stinky trash bag in hand, I see something BLUE staring at me.
It’s the recycling bin that hasn’t been emptied yet.
And I have a little angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other:
Little Angel: “No, you can’t do that.”
Little Devil: “Nobody is checking whether there’s only recycling in there.
Nobody will notice!”
Little Angel: “But that’s evil!”
Little Devil: “Having this stinky garbage in the trash can for another week in Texas heat – THAT is evil!”
Alright, alright… I didn’t do it!
And I never have! Promised.
My garbage has been sitting in the trash can for a few weeks, and I can tell you:
It ain’t pretty
Ok, so help me out here.
I don’t know why I can’t retain it!
I mean, it’s not that they are changing the day of garbage pickup every week.
The day after Tuesday.
I think I know my problem:
Nothing “rhymes” with Wednesday that would help me remember.
“Trash Tuesday” – that’s easy.
“Trash Thursday” – that works, too.
“Trash Sunday” – even that works: It’s the end of the week, so time to take out the trash.
Ok, does anybody have a tip how to remember that? If so, leave it in the comments.
And I’ll keep spraying deodorant on the trash…
