Where the Party At?

Oh the suburbs! You just never know when the zip code will give you a little laugh.

Garbage day, that is a concept you don’t know from in the city. But here in the burbs we have set days that the garbage is put out at the curb for pick up. 

The other morning, after the dog walk (the wandering rascal is leashed for this) I was talking with the neighbor and his adorable grandson when I noticed that there was some garbage at my curb that I did not recognize. (yes, I am very close with my garbage if you must know).

Get this, it was a Coors Lite 12 pack. I certainly do not drink Coors Lite and Gary does not drink at all! And if you are all paying attention out there, the hormonal teens in my house are away for the summer. In this box were the empties, a few crumpled snack bags and right on top, neatly placed, a stack of red plastic cups like the one above. A regular little party on the go, if you will.

I am not sure if this is just a thing in our town, but for some reasons teenagers always drink beer out of these red Solo cups. Never blue or white or clear for that matter, only these red ones. HS kids here have actually gotten in trouble with the school district for having Facebook pics holding these red babies. Very incriminating indeed. (I am thinking their civil liberties might have been violated there, no?)

I digress, sorry. Being the CSI queen, or as Gary has dubbed me more than once, the Dick in the Mouth Detective, I came to the conclusion that some teen in the ‘hood did not want to get caught having a party while the rents were out and got up early to unload the evidence with my garbage.

Not only creative, but I have to say I was rather impressed at the environmentally sound means of disposal. I am thinking at that age we just left them on the closest street corner and ran away.

Ahhhh, GenGreen, how could I get mad at these little degenerates!

  1. Environmentally conscious youth. Love it. The red ones COST LESS than the others. At least here. Why? Hard to imagine!

    Hilarious! I guess all this going green business is really starting to make an impact. Excellent!

  4. how cool is this folks, a comment from someone new. welcome RGP. glad I could make you laugh. loved your blog. need to dance around there some more, lots to look at.

  5. The funny part about the red cups is that I was totally oblivious (which the Teenage Wonder also known as Son “informs” me I am most of the time!) about the “red cups”. So, for his Open House After Graduation, I bought, you got it, red cups for the teenagers and blue cups for the adults, that way the teens would not confuse their non-alcoholic drinks – red cups – with the margarita cups – blue cups. I walked out into the backyard carrying a large tray full of red cups and all of the teenagers started laughing! It was only after the fact that the Teenage Wonder clued me in! Sheesh! Somebody needs to tell a Diva about these things! Love your column, by the way!
