And no, I’m not talking about shopping trolleys.
The weather in Canberra today was surprisingly good. It wasn’t cold and it wasn’t too warm. It was overcast with a hint of humidity. My skin didn’t feel too dry. It was the sort of day that I would have expected a lot of people to be out walking around Lake Ginninderra.
Instead, it was pretty barren. I saw a few familiar faces, the regulars who I see when I’m on a morning walk.
More often than not, the play areas are occupied with children and their parents. Today, though, the playground and the climbing equipment were bare.
Even in a city like Canberra, people just dump old furniture on the sidewalk assuming someone will take it and keep it, or the city council authorities will pick it up for disposal. When that happens, taxpayers and rates payers end up footing the bill.
I this was a nice juxtaposition, though. You can attend an inspection and have a sit-down and discussion while you’re at it.
Do you like your melons hairy? The mind boggles. I’m not sure I want to eat a hairy melon! 😳😂🤣
Medical fun facts
Have you listened to my podcast? I’ve recorded this week’s shows and they will drop on Monday and Thursday night (Canberra time). On Monday night, I discuss sputum microbiology and on Thursday night I explain why the Gram’s stain is my favourite test in microbiology.
My short story
Last week, I mentioned I was thinking about writing a short story. I’ve started. That’s about all I can say.
