My Junk
Published on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 by

So here it is.  THE day.  I have anticipated it for 16 days.  For today is when we of the ZivaMikeBob photo challenge finally get to see MikeWJ’s junk!  I’ll be stalking Too Many Mornings until the infamous post appears and I know you will too!

Today we were asked to portray “My Junk.”  I know this isn’t exclusive to Corolla, but there are days when people dump their junk all over the beach, simply because they are on vacation.  “I paid good money for this vacation so I can do whatever I like!”

The moment I come across their junk, it becomes my junk.  Because I just can’t leave trash on the beach, no matter who put it there!

  • What jerks. You’re awesome to clean it up. I do the same thing while kayaking since I never seem to make it to the beach. I’ve already been by Mike’s. It’s totally worth the view!

    • Nora, you are a cruel cruel woman…. To get me so excited, only to bring me down…. Sniffffff!!!!

      • mikewjattoomanymornings

        You really shouldn’t use “excited” and “bring me down” in the same sentence.

  • I know what you mean. I’m obsessive about cleaning my neighborhood. When I treasure hunt, I always leave the park or even the circle K cleaner than when I came. Very cool.

    Hee Hee. Mike’s junk. I could say something about stroking but…

    What is it with people and litter? It’s not just the beach. In our neighborhood one morning, I watched someone in the car in front of me roll down their window and toss out a candy wrapper. Oh my. I was livid. I couldn’t tell if it was a child or an adult but I want to confront them. Sigh. I didn’t. This is Texas. Too many people have guns.

    Your beach is pretty. Thank you for cleaning up after the pigs.

      Stroking? It’s like you’re watching me or something…Are you with the NSA?

  • I will never understand why people litter. It’s so easy to put it in a nearby trash can or if there is one close by, take it with you, until you find one.

  • “Because I just can’t leave trash on the beach, no matter who put it there!”

    I can’t STAND when people litter like that. It’s so rude and disrespectful!

    UGH!!

    “The moment I come across their junk, it becomes my junk. Because I just can’t leave trash on the beach, no matter who put it there!”

    Amen, Katherine! When I lived in Florida, I would see junk like this all the time. And now that I live in a city, I see it as well – people leaving their trash wherever.

    Great photo and message for this theme, girl!!!

  • Funny how somebody else’s junk makes for an interesting pic. Nice shot.

  • Kudos to you 🙂 Living in the city you sort of expect to see litter, but when you see it on the beach or in the woods? Bah.

  • Tami Von Zalez

    Yep, you get to see Mike’s junk, but it is nothing to write home about. hahahah

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      Yes it is, Tami. And that would a long letter, too.

  • I’m with you, Katherine, I hate garbage by the street or on the beach, and I tend to pick it up and throw it away, but enough about that, because I really love your photo today. It’s definitely my favorite of yours so far. It’s interesting and well composed, and a really good photo. Great job!

    Oh, and I’m sorry…. MikeWJ showed me the photo he was going to post today, but I made him post something else because I was afraid his junk would just be too intimidating for the men and too tempting for the women. My bad. 😉

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      I hope I didn’t ruin you to other men, Ziva. So many women feel such disappointment with other men after they’ve witnessed my junk.

  • It amazes me that people still do this. What are they thinking? Good for you picking it up, Katherine!

  • MalisaHargrove

    Can I come to your beach house? I’ll help clean up the junk! We can stay up late at night talking about Mike’s junk…or his lamp.

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      Definitely the lamp. However, I would like to note that in the East Indian ayurvedic medical tradition, the penis is considered a wand of light, which is similar to a lamp.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    I don’t believe my junk has ever been such a hot topic of discussion by so many women at once, although there was that one night in Vegas that…well, that’s another story entirely. Anyway, I don’t know whether to feel honored, embarrassed or pressured here.

    Not to switch the topic, but I’m totally changing the topic, I like your photo, Katherine. It is my favorite of yours so far in this dismal event. All it lacks is that Italian actor who portrayed the weepy American Indian in the 1970s environmental commercials. Remember that one?

  • I don’t know how you do it – make a discarded soda can look great. The beach looks so enticing, can and all.

  • You and I have that in common. Not just on the beach but, if I see trash, I just can’t let it sit. Makes me crazy.

  • This is a really great photo, Katherine.

  • I don’t know . It has less garbage and dirt than my apartment…

  • Good for you! I feel the same way. We pick up trash whenever we see it.

    I pick up broken glass for the sake of my dogs’ feet (and other people’s dogs’ feet) but if I were to pick up every stray can or McD wrapper I see I’d do nothing else, ever. You are very lucky to live in a place where it’s possible for one person to make a noticeable difference.

  • When my son was little, we’d always spend Earth Day picking up trash at the beach. (As well as many other Saturday mornings.)

  • I am the same way. I hate not picking up trash when I see it. Makes me wonder what people think.
