The one thing I needed most out of my shopping trip today was the one thing I didnít get. I was in a store where that item was not only on display, but on sale. I took the tag to the cashier, and she told me they were ďout.Ē I was going to point out that they werenít so out that they didnít have one on the floor, but I had seen the one on the floor and didnít want that one. So for my purposes, they were indeed ďout.Ē
The trip wasnít a total loss. The traffic was far less hectic than Iíd feared, for one thing. It wasnít any worse than it is any other time of year. And as I do any time Iím out driving, I got behind the slowest person in town, stuck going five miles an hour below the speed limit. No wonder nobody ever gets anywhere!
But that was my only complaint, really, other than the store being ďoutĒ of the one thing I really wanted. I did find many other things and filled many gaps in my list. Now I have a better handle on what I need to do to get my shopping done. If I can do that in one more trip, Iíll be happy. If I can do it without leaving the house, Iíll be even happier.
