Spiffed up the balcony, intend to work outside as the days get warmer, maybe even do some yoga. Still have a ways to go but it’s coming along.
Ventured out to the local drug mart. We used to be able to walk through the mall but can’t anymore. I spot an old guy slowly making his way around the east side of the mall. I decide to go west.
Why is the bubble tea shop still open? It’s unbelievable – the parking lots are empty. Someone in a hoodie is using the space to run – Who does he think he is, Rocky? Just before hitting the drug mart, I see the liquor store and smile. Should I? … No! Keep walking.
I needed makeup. Lipstick and mascara mainly. Body lotion, shampoo, conditioner. Ooh, what’s this? Cocokind mymatcha all-over moisture stick. In the cart you go.
On my way back, I decided to stop in at the neighbourhood grocer. Wow! It’s packed. I thought about leaving but decided to forge ahead (please don’t judge me.) From now on, though, I will stick to weekday visits, fewer people.
I grab what I need and head to the checkout. Move back bitch! God! Can you not see the stickers on the floor or hear the constant social distancing reminders over the loudspeaker. Jesus!
