Doesn't everyone have my problem?

The local NPR radio channel has now had two stories on how recycling breaks up couples by causing marital strife. But when they have the shows, all the people who call in downplay this and say, yeah, they may disagree, but its not like they're getting divorced or anything.

Which leads me to suspect that some bitter, angry radio exec and his wife are having a terrible falling out over whether or not cottage cheese containers are recyclable.

And he's blowing it all out of proportion, like this is destroying households everywhere.

So, in a similar vein, I'd like to offer my services to all those other couples out there, the thousands of you, who must, like me, struggle with that part of the relationship that cannot resolve whether Edgar Allan Poe was a master of prose, or a master of plot.

I submit to you that he was mainly a master of being Edgar Allen Poe, and writing like him. ^_^

ETA: Er, Edgar Allan Poe. He wasn't very good at being the other. *facepalm*

Yikes! You know, that makes a lot of sense - the NPR exec notion - otherwise, what the heck?

Poe - he dual-wielded, of course. Master of Prose and Plot. Wax on; wax off. Pft! Problem solved. Time for pie.

I tried the dual-action answer. I failed. Waah!

I think I'll instigate an argument about the tin cans tonight instead...

Oh, highlander universe, eh? There Can Be Only One?
Pft. Like anything's black & white? Humbug, I say!

So, yeah, go with the cans. Much firmer footing there.
Plastic is so wishy-washy.
