Your humble correspondent is a scofflaw

I like to drink condiments straight from the bottle. It drives my wife crazy, but I’m particularly fond of Cholula hot sauce (Gwyneth Paltrow’s favourite, and available for at La Tortillera on Lawrence). I’m a thrill seeker that way. I’m a daredevil. Keep your daughters and wives away, because I can’t be tamed. Yeah, I do all kinds of bad things; I also wear mismatched socks and like to grow my sideburns long. Go on. Call me a rebel.

But don’t call me a scofflaw. I scoff at Scoville units, but I never scoff at the law. I can stomach Scotch peppers, but my guts turn over with Irish guilt when I’ve done something wrong.

And I have.

I forgot to disconnect my downspout. Sunday was the last day. The new law requires you and me southern Westonians to stop pouring our filthy rainwater into the over-taxed sewer system. We are to pour our water into barrels (also available on Lawrence, in blue only) or onto our lawns.

If, like me, you’ll be heading to the Home Hardware, you may wish to have a look at the city’s DIY guide.

Thanks to anon for reminding me.

Update: Nicole is right. I read the map wrong. In my defense, the thing is unintelligible.

  1. Thanks for the info, guess it depends where exactly in Weston you live. It is a good idea to check the link Adm provided. I checked the map and my street doesn’t have to disconnect until 2016.

  2. LOL adam.

    p.s, the other day i saw guy standing in front of his still connected downspout during a rain shower proclaiming “take that society!”. 😉
