I’m not into social media that much (for starters, I don’t do Facebook–gasp!), but if my fellow colleagues at the Penn Museum would happen to pick an avatar, a visual representation for myself, it would probably be this:
This is not because I visit the bathroom more frequently than the average person. This is because I am a hoarder of reusable by-products. And my coworkers anticipate this and enable me. Case in point:

So, how many tubes will it take to operate the camp this summer? At least 260. Here’s the crafts on the docket that call for the paper tubes:
I will need those TP tubes by July. So, before those tubes hit your recycling bin, considering donating them to Penn Museum summer camp.
Many thanks to my coworkers for enabling my crafty (hoarding) habit!
