I’m Not Laughing at My Mistake – Daily Quote

wanna-hear-a-joke_-decaf.-anonymous

I made a horrible mistake. Saying I dislike shopping is an understatement. The past months have done nothing to increase my enjoyment of the process. My reluctant trips for necessities don’t register on my bucket list. I delay them, waiting until they attain dire importance status. Then, I prepare my list, gather my mask, gloves, and hand sanitizer before heading out.

My grocery list is organized to follow the layout of a favorite familiar store. The produce section is my first stop where I make careful selections. I move quickly since I want to minimize the total time spent in the shop. I navigate one-way aisles, fill my cart, avoid close contact with other shoppers, and proceed to the checkout line.

The fun doesn’t end when I get my packages home, as I place the purchases in quarantine, just in case. The most important reason for my trip was to restock my dwindling coffee supply. You can imagine my horror when I liberated my favorite caffeinated morning brew only to discover that it was marked “decaf.” I wanted to cry. Instead, I grabbed my personal protective gear and raced back to the store. Some things you just don’t joke about.

What makes you rush to the store?
