Just had to post yesterday's experience of splendid irony. I live in out in the sticks on a road that serves as a perimeter to a giant 300 acre
farm. So I am out doing an 8 mile jog with my dog, breathing fresh country air and soakin' up some sunshine, when all of a sudden a giant balloon
tired fertilizer truck starts spraying adjacent to the road, and the mist drifts right into my face! Cough cough, eyes burning, can't get away from
it! Then, I see on the side of the truck tanks, Monsanto, yikes!! Not a mile later, a dozen dump trucks slowly convoy past me spilling good ole
diesel exhaust that hovered in the air for a good 15 minutes. Okay, I get past that, then, along side of the road is a thin linear patch of
grass/weeds, so guess what kind of truck comes next? The one that says Round-UP on the side. So I have to let it pass while trying to reduce my
inhalations, pulling my shirt up over my face at this point.
Geez, who'd a thought a country run could be so toxic?!?!
Do I need a joggers hazmat suit?
What 'splendid irony" have you experienced recently?
