Schedule got completely warped by the battery thing, of course. The best part of today was when we realized that we forgot to get dry cat food for the cat this weekend. So, of course I told my wife Sure, I’ll go to the supermarket. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. At night.
This was not the smartest thing that I have ever done, obviously. I mean, it wasn’t a disaster – that one person didn’t actually try to strangle that other person who hadn’t seen the half-aisle long line for the self-checkout kiosks – but oh, dear. The cashier for my purchase stopped dead cold afterward and said This was the easiest transaction I’ve done all day. It’s a shame we don’t have tip jars for supermarket cashiers, because I would have given her one for that alone.
Driving tomorrow. Yay!
