En route to an area called Silvertip for the next leg in my determination to rid the area of litter, I stopped to pick up some new litter, new in that I’d cleaned this area last week. That litter was a pair of men’s shorts, very snazzy in white, gray and black.
I find a lot of stuff while I'm walking the roads, beside beer cans and dirty diapers, I mean. This summer, I've found two knives, a heavy chain, several pieces of firewood, a tide book, and three golf balls. Also a bunch of black rubber straps and bungee cords.
The shorts looked new and in such excellent condition I thought I might be able to find someone who wanted them. I checked the size tab in the waist band and what I found, other than waist size 32, turned out to be one of the greatest litter finds ever in my ten years of long-distance litter-picking!
What a fine pair of shorts!
What an informative label! Fabric from Taiwan, assembled in China, shipped to Washington, USA.
What’s so great about all this?
The other half of the label!!! It’s a nutrition chart.

There are absolutely no calories in these shorts, so eat up, my friends! And take a vitamin pill.
