It's Roll Up The Rim To Win time. For you non-Canadians, RUTRTW is this promotion they have at Tim Horton's where you can, not surprisingly, win prizes by rolling up the rim of your coffee cup. Your disposable paper coffee cup.
This is where the test of my will comes in. As I have mentioned before, I bring a travel mug around with me, as I prefer not to use disposable cups, destroying trees and filling up landfills unnecessarily. When I emailed my sister the pic from the Metro, her response was "And look at you sporting your environmentally friendly coffee cup." It's what I do. However, I also like winning things. Hence, my dilemma. You can't very well win anything at Roll Up The Rim To Win if you don't take the paper coffee cup. So, I've been to Timmy's twice since RUTRTW started and used my travel mug both times, forgoing my opportunity to roll and win. But how long can I resist the siren song this is a chance to win an iPod**? And shouldn't they have a contest that rewards the use of non-disposable mugs, rather than promoting those who continue to fill up our landfills??
Me, modeling with a disposable paper cup at Timmy's (not a Roll Up The Rim To Win one, mind you) on a day when I was not practising what I preach. And yes, I always dress this nicely to go to Timmy's, don't you?
*I know. I'm weird.
**I know that I already have an iPod. But this one has more memory than mine!
