“What do you do with these?” Katie asks about the little disks of wood littering the sidewalk to the nice man sawing yet another disc off of the base of our Christmas tree.

“You can have them if you want,” he says with a shrug.

“Aren’t they wonderful?” asks a random lady (who is not buying a Christmas tree) walking by, and as she asks she starts picking up the little discs of wood.

And even though they’re free, I find myself resenting this random woman a little, because we bought a Christmas tree from these folks, and she just starts picking up the discs of wood like they’re trash that anybody can have, whereas we actually paid for this trash.
