So I've been thinking about my scheme to get free plants for my garden...I mean, my program for reducing greenhouse gases. Pretty soon, tons of money will be pouring into my coffers. Mind you, nothing has poured in yet...except for a dime I found on the floor and Teresa said I could have it...but surely it is just a matter of time.
Being the proactive, forward-thinking person that I am, I have identified one possible flaw in my plan: I might not have time to plant all my new shrubs.
But I am nothing if not a problem-solver, and so, incredible as it may seem to people less gifted, I have already crafted a solution before the problem has even reared its head.
I will figure out how much money I earn per day at work and sell a special credit for that amount. You can be a "day sponsor" like they have on NPR. And what do you get for sponsoring a day? Here's the good part:
If you will send me the equivalent of a day's pay, I promise not to go to work that day but instead stay home and plant things in my garden...dang it, I mean in the "LMAID Climate Change Initiative Project Site." Not only will your sponsorship make it possible for me to get those plants in the ground, it will also keep me from burning gasoline to go to work, thereby further reducing both oil consumption and pollution. And I'll put your name on a sticker and wear it on my hat so when I'm doing interviews, the world will know that you are the one making it possible for me to skip work and play in my gar...Project Site.
Teresa said she wouldn't be holding her breath waiting for contributions. (I don't know what that has to do with anything. The mail doesn't come until noon--I didn't expect her to hold her breath for 17 hours. She says very strange things sometimes.)
