Fashion is not a concern when I can quietly enjoy nature, thought Olga,
as plastic wrap slowly destroyed the environment.

She should carry the modern (not) invention of a stick with a pointed steel head to catch the trash.

She is right about not worrying about fashion when sitting on an outside bench.

An important point highlighted in a fun way.

Yeah, I noticed the plastic wrap too. But at least it's not destroying her enjoyment of the park!

I like the contrast of enjoying nature and trash on the ground. No matter how many trash cans are available, one still finds trash on the ground, especially at any public school in the US!

I think Jim and I are on the same wave-length, this time. I, too, thought Olga should carry with her a stick with a nail on the end of it. It most certainly wouldn't take away from her "fashion statement." LOL!

How true. Fashion is generally overrated. That bench and its surroundings look as though they need a little more love and a little less trashing. Good story.

"as plastic wrap slowly destroyed the environment" is just great! Of course, the environment might not be completely destroyed in Olga's lifetime, so she wonders why she should worry about it.
