I had an interesting week. After dodging a bout with the flu, I picked myself up and made my way to the grocery store where I preceded to purchase my Thanksgiving dinner items. I should know from twelve years working in the grocery industry that the Friday before the holiday is a bad time to shop. Trust me.
Still, I ventured out in search of the perfect turkey and yes, so did probably three quarters of the town where I live. I picked up everything on my list. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, dog food.
Hey, they have to eat too!
After navigating the store aisles with my list in tow and winding around countless other shoppers, I managed to find a checkout line with only several cart-filled people waiting to escape the madness.
I really thought I was out of the woods. Then I was almost hit by three people backing their cars out of parking spaces. All backing up without one glance around to see if someone might possibly be walking behind them.
Whew, finally made it to my car, loaded the groceries, and proceeded to escape the mayhem when,
Wait for it! Another car almost backed into my car!
I will not venture out again until after Christmas. What I have to Christmas shop? Nooooo!
OMG. I forgot the dog food.
