tree recycling 101

Well, Sprucefem the Merry Christmas Tree met her end today, it was terribly sad. I feel a little better knowing that she'll be used in landscaping and paths in sedgwick county parks, but I still had to keep reminding myself that she was planted just for this purpose, to make someone's Christmas this much more exciting. And she did!

It makes me think about cows, how they're born just to be hamburgers. I realized once that humans spend so much time wondering about the meaning of life, and some of us even think there isn't one. Cows, on the other hand, have a meaning for their lives, a reason they were put on this earth: steak. But if they realized that they'd be totally depressed all the time. Maybe that's how our meaning is, and we're smart enough to contemplate it, so that's why it's hidden from us, so we won't get depressed.

I think Sprucefem had a pretty good meaning, she shouldn't be upset about this whole affair.
