Ghetto Garbage Can

Tom has nicknamed me "Destroyer of all things Good" because according to him, I have a tendency to break, damage and completely ruin things in and around our home. Take our garbage can for example.


It's one of those step cans and it sits sort of close to the back wall and Tom said, "Be careful stepping on this. Only step on it when it's pulled away from the wall a few inches because it will...

...chip the paint."

Woops.

So now Tom enters into "creative planning mode" and comes up with a solution for his ape-brained wife.

He affixes a Godiva chocolate box to the back of the can so it will not hit the wall.

Wrigs keeps sniffing this high tech masterpiece, hoping a chocolate morsel will surface.

Ridiculously foolish looking? Yes. But I must admit...mission accomplished.

Perhaps he should patent this latest invention. I'm sure I'm not the only ape-brain out there.

Though Tom may beg to differ.

Tom is genius!!!
It would not be as ghetto if you painted the box the same color as the can. Smart right???

Don't you just love it when ghetto-ness works!

Now all that's left to do is color in that chipped paint!

Where's the Crayons??
