One day, I let slip that I was thinking of collecting the plastic tops of OJ bottles and that I actually didn't have anything in mind for them (yet).
The husband, initially aghast, suppressed a smile and said, "The county has interventions for people like you."
Apparently, some people let their houses get so cluttered with all kinds of nonsense that they call the county folks, who despatch an intervention specialist to help them clean out their homes. Sort of like Clean House, but without the wit. Is this true?
My feeble defence that "some people actually have bins in their garages where they toss all kinds of fun materials that they can later use to make really cool things!" fell flat. Now why take OJ bottle tops so seriously? Unless..... could it be...... he knows about my cardboard stash! And yet said nothing about it! Oh how I love this man!
