What was I thinking?

Saturday, 21 November 2020

Yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to go to a grocery store to pick up a few things. We don’t need a full order and online has a minimum order for delivery or pickup. So, instead of placing a large order when we only need a few things… I was looking forward to picking a few gala apples that are firm and crisp.

I must say, the apples we’ve been getting lately from curbside pickup have been… disappointing is a probably a safe word to use.

My plan was to get up early, be at the store as it opened.

What is that saying…God laughs when we make plans?

I arrived at our local IGA around noon. What. Was. I. Thinking?

I was thinking Covid has been around since March. Everyone knows how to stay safe, give each other space…

I was thinking Covid has been around for nine months, people know to follow the arrows on the floor, to not crowd each other…

I was thinking… it’s November, we are well into the second wave, the Prime Minister said to stay home, surely they cap the number of shoppers in the store?

I was thinking… Why don’t they wipe the pin pad down between users? They used too, didn’t they.

I was thinking…this was a bad idea… I’ll put up with disappointing apples…so what if they’re soft? I can always make apple sauce.

Evening grosbeak.
