Necessities

This afternoon it started snowing and elicited panic city-wide where I live. I left work a little early because I’m the boss and I can.

I decided to stop by the store on my way home and I completely forgot how crowded and insane stores get before a snowfall in the South. The parking lot was full of people rushing in for the bare essentials before becoming homebound by the storm.
As I stood in the express line I noticed I was surrounded by folks with their baskets overflowing with milk, bread and baby food. I glanced down at my own basket.
Tonic water and toilet paper.
I have my priorities too, ya know.

    Wish you were here—I could ski over to your place and enjoy some of that tonic! Crazy here…they are not plowing any of the side roads. Eastland, Cahal, Ellington-the interstates are shit. So I am going stir crazy! Miss ya!

    I had beer. After living in Ft Wayne, this was a walk in the park. I know, all you need is beer. Ha!

    Funny, what would you do with some cold weather. We hit -11.4 at night. But i guess a few sheets of that toilet paper could keep one warm.
