Thanks to Ellen Hume for referring us to this great bit by George Carlin: “Stuff.”
The comments by Ellen (on Facebook) and others (attached to Carol’s post — Taming the Acquisition Monster) have me thinking about the important role of comments in this journey of ours into the downsized life. I’ll explore that topic in a subsequent post.
But Carlin’s sketch is too good not to share immediately. It’s worth a five-minute Friday afternoon break, even if you watched way back when Carlin first performed it nearly 30 years ago. Carlin died in 2008.
Challenging discussion you two have started. You’re becoming urban ascetics! Good stuff.
Thanks, Tom, but we’ve got a ways to go before we’re urban ascetics – we live in one of the nicest neighborhoods of one of the best cities in the country. We eat well, travel a lot and haven’t given the car up yet even though we don’t really need it.
This is one of my ALL time favorites!! (This is Sara of Sara & Chris. We met you and Bill last Friday at the big birthday party at your house!)
