The idea was to conserve energy, recycle and do something no one else had ever thought of. During lunch, I’d walk around, make myself a total annoyance and look for soda cans. I figured each can, filled with insulation would make a perfect brick. Spread on some mortar, cover with stucco and you’ve got yourself a house. After a while, can collecting became an obsession. Wash them out at the water fountain and store them in my locker. My locker space for books became smaller.

Mike loved kicking the bottom of the can pile and watch them all tumble out.
