Here are a couple of things I’m wondering about throwing away:

  1. The “holiday gift pack” I received containing body splash and lotion, heavily perfumed.  Scented stuff drives me nuts, but I hate to throw it away.  I don’t know anyone I’d be willing to give it to.  The bottles are not recyclable, by the way.
    Linguistic note: I only use the word ‘gift’ when it’s from someone I don’t really know.  If it’s a friend or a family member, I use the word ‘present.’
  2. Ohhh, a wonderful yoga book, B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health.  I bought it a couple of years ago, and recommend it highly to anyone with a serious yoga practice.  Here’s the deal.  The book came out without sufficient editing and proofreading, and the Iyengar family was very unhappy.  The new edition is all fixed, but they want people to throw away the original version.  I just hate throwing away any book, especially a hardcover book.  I am afraid it would be irresponsible to give it to someone else, even Goodwill, because who knows what’s wrong in it.  (I’m not nuts about spending another $35, but I might anyway, because the book is so great.)

I guess I’m very lucky to have these dilemmas. We have food on the table and a roof over our heads.
