Tonight I took my 10 year old and 18 year old to Walmart to pick up some things for my class in the morning. As we were coming back out to the car, I looked down and saw a syringe lying on the ground. I said, "Look at that! A syringe lying on the ground. I'm going to throw it away." My son said, "Mom, don't touch it, just kick it in to the bushes." I said, "And have it stick in to my shoe? No way, I'm just going to pick it up and throw it away." He said, "No, don't touch it, just leave it there." I said, "I'm not going to leave it there for someone to reuse, they could die from that." My son said, "So what Mom, that's natural selection."
I threw it in the trash can. Did I thwart evolution? ;)
