High Tech Trash

Who would'a thunk it? My kitchen now has an automatic trash can. No longer must one open a lid or step on the pedal. Now, a mere motion near the lip of the can raises the eager lid. Seconds later the lid closes to conceal its bounty.

I'm sure an infrared trash can isn't something new...but it's something one doesn't ponder. Then, to have your wife determine that this unit is the size needed for the kitchen AND is cheaper than manual receptacles, plus being stainless steel?! End of story.

To add to the comedy, my darling daughter - smart as a tack - can easily hear the subtle noise that lid motor makes while raising and lowering. She can hear this noise across the room - assuming she's not involved in other activities - and share rather matter-of-fact with me, "that's the trash can."

The video wasn't just a story of a young woman growing in her faith, it was also a call to action. A challenge to love people first, regardless of their choices or if they agree with you. At the video's end was apparently the girl's online identity in white text over a black: iEmanuella
