So, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those, “last minute” grocery people during imminent natural disasters. Oh yeah, that’s me, in line, with the milk, and the cereal, and the bottled water.
I have the day off today, which was convenient for people like me. So I went to Joe’s, down the street, and I was in line with about half a dozen other people.
I finished my transaction and filled up my bag, when the next person in line came up with their items.
Two small limes.
“Going to ride out the storm with gin and tonics?”
“You know it.”
We shared a laugh and I went back home, suddenly realizing that I had forgotten orange juice.
