Overview

Taking Out The Trash is a collection of stories that will guide you through the tenderness of loss, the silver linings of tragedy, the welcome relief of humor, and the insight of a very curious imagination. It will inspire and enlighten you, and provoke surprising thoughts. All because Ros Hill not only knows how to weave a good story, but has the not-so-common gift of unveiling the beauty of the human element.

Taking Out The Trash. You'll cry. You'll laugh. You'll wonder.

- A dying research scientist wants to know, "What is today's date?" When asked why, his answer is profoundly simple, and a quintessential example of always gathering facts: "I just want to know the date that I'll die."

- Perhaps it's time to fix Monday. To take a wrench to it, and turn it into a day we can actually look forward to. What if we gave 36 hours to Sunday, and only 12 hours to Monday?

- A dog named Bucket enters a basketball arena. Everyone's eyes lift up from their cell phones. It's the perfect example of the unpredictability of nature stealing the attention from technology. Funny how we never grow old of nature's fi rst version.

Taking Out The Trash. You'll cry. You'll laugh. You'll wonder.

About the Author

With a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Ros Hill set out to make a career in the radio industry. Only problem Was, it didn't go as planned. He discovered a little thing called a backpack, and a big thing called Africa. He hitchhiked in Zimbabwe, explored the sand dunes of Namibia, and traveled throughout South Africa. He was 25 years old and was embarking on an adventure that would pave the way to writing and illustrating Unexpexted Tails, a children's book that demonstrated the depth of his imagination, and talent as a writer.
