I was eating an apple in the car and I usually just hum the uneaten portion out the window when I'm done because, you know, it's biodegradable. So I'm cruising at 80 m.p.h. and I put down the passenger side window and chuck...but the apple did not want to go. It just ricocheted off the windshield and lodged itself it the corner of the dashboard. I was slightly miffed with my apple remnant at first, but then I started giggling. Silly apple, get out of there!

A few miles down the road I witnessed someone tossing banana peels out of their van window. (Somehow I thought I'd better avoid them so my car didn't slip.) It's nice to know recycling can happen anywhere.

The exact same thing happened to me when I was working the grocery store job. Every day between stores I would buy an apple to eat in the car and then I would chuck it. One day I missed, and it smacked right into the dashboard. I was annoyed, but then I forgot all about it. It was summer time, and like a week later there was this sticky brown spot where the apple had hit from the sun heating up the apple juices. It was gross. So make sure you wipe that spot down with something. EW.
