Calliope schleps their two-stuffed-paper-sack-maximum to truck. “C’mon guys. The flyer says… Shred will be accepted from 9AM to 11AM SHARP”
“It also sezzzzz — All persons will remain in their vehicles, and Assistance will be available.” Thalia puffs at a Henny-hair tumbleweed that floats across kitchen tiles. “For freeeeee! Our bank makes it so easy to lighten our load.”
“And our shelves.” Nia hands Typist her FOB, then jots a note to sign up for more online statements. Paper statements are a habit whose shedding time has come.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.

Is this Shredding Saturday, or something? Our local credit union is offering shredding today, also 9AM-11AM (missed it, oh well!) and had "stay in your car" instructions.
We have a home shredder, and we've (mostly) shifted to e-docs, so the only time we care about free shredding is when we have cartons of paperwork, like after Deb's mom died (loved her dearly, but Mom never quite understood WHY she was supposed to not just throw away statements and bills, so we had things like a five-page utility statement, of which one page had personal data and the rest was notices, alerts, ads <sigh> still in the original envelope).
