A sense of loss
I used to have two recycle bins in my office: one behind me, and one at the door. This stems from back when I had an officemate: my officemate and I drank so much Diet Coke that we ran out of room for our cans halfway through the week, so we were given a second one. A couple nights ago "they" replaced my old bins with a single new blue one. It's doubtful that I need two anymore. But I really miss having that recycle bin behind me. After I finished a can I could triumphantly deposit it. It was a natural part of Diet Coke consumption. Now I have to hurl it toward the window hoping that it makes it into the can without splashing on my blinds (bad idea) or wait until the next time I leave my office (good idea).
