I was making breakfast and I when I put the eggshells in the compost bucket, I noticed it was very full and on top was a little mountain of gross-looking dirt. And first thing in the morning, that makes me gag a little. So I asked Nathan, in my sweetest gaggy voice, "Did you dump than hand-vac into the compost bucket?"
Nathan: "No, I swept the mudroom floor."
Me: "And dumped it in the compost? That grosses me out..."
N: "You have turkey feet and eggshells simmering on the stove. Surely that is grosser." [Don't ask. --ed.]
M: "No, that's food. But this is yucky dirt in the compost bucket where I am making food. Why not dump it in your bucket?"
M: "So dump it outside."
N: "It's a big pile of dirt to just toss outside!"
M: "You know what's outside? Piles of dirt."
