I was pulling out my pad of paper in history class today when something new happened. We were going to do a little mini-quiz type thing our professor has us do to make sure we're doing the reading. It's usually only one or two paragraphs. I was asked by the girl sitting next to me if I had any scrap paper to spare. I said no, not scrap paper. When I said this, she turned to the person in front of her and asked a question that will be etched in my mind forever,
"Do you want to go green with me? Split a piece of paper in half?"
Look at the phrasing of it, "Do you want to go green with me?" That gets me. I suppose the intention is good, I have no quarrel with someone who wants to conserve things. I just wasn't aware it could be a casual social activity.
"Hey Harv, what do you say we carry these groceries in our hands and go green today?"
"Come on, it'll be fun!"
Just when I think I have society figured out...
