An email to the producer who will soon be my other boss.

So after our dinner, I started thinking a lot more about where I put my cigarette butts, and I decided to try and break the habit of throwing spent smokes out the window while driving. I’m always equipped with a can of Diet Coke while on the road, and my car is littered with empties, so I figured, hey, why not make an unofficial ashtray? It’s been working out well. I keep the ashtray can in the far right cupholder, and the active can in the far left cupholder. I try to set up these systems for myself, you see. Problem is, I’m not always good at sticking to my systems.

Cut to Sunday night. It’s 12:30am, I’ve just gotten home from a weekend in North Carolina, and I’m absolutely parched. I reach down to the far left cupholder, grab my can of Diet, and take a healthy swig. I come away with the foulest taste in my mouth since the ill-fated mai tai of Friday morning… fouler, even. There was a floater butt in my left hand can.

So you’ve done a great thing for the Earth but a bad thing for me… I still feel bad throwing my butts out the window, and will continue to implement the ashtray can, but MAN. that was GROSS.

  1. Betcha won’t do that again. Or maybe you will but with slight hesitation next time….coming from someone who has done the same thing more than once 🙂
