I Will Darn Near Break My Arm Before I Make A Second Trip With The Groceries
Unless you have some crazy biofarm where you grow all your own food, make your own clothes, and raise your own meat and diary, you probably go to the store just like me. But, when I go to the store... there is always a slight competition with myself. And today, I've hit my personal best. Seven bags, one case of pop, and two gallons of milk.... in one trip from the car to the kitchen.
THAT'S RIGHT. I will do everything in my power to move heaven and earth, whatever it takes, to not have to make a second trip back into the house. Admittedly, when I do the "big shop" once a month, that's just not possible. But for the "every other week shop" , every single time I try my darndest to carry all of the groceries in in one go.
I don't know why I'm like this. I mean, it's not difficult to just go out again and make a second trip. But there's just something inside me that won't let me at least try to get everything in at once. I guess it's just a...competition with myself? Which is weird, because I am not really that competitive, especially with other people. But when it comes to carrying in the groceries, I am ready to bring it. Literally. In the house.
Today was, as far as I can recall, a personal best. I was a little worried about the case of pop under my arm, but the bags and the milk were secure. And I made it in without dropping anything or slipping on wet grass, which is a feat in and of itself. The only bad thing was... nobody was around to see it. Husbando is out of town, and the girls are in Colombia in near quarantine til this whole mess blows over.
So of course, I have to share it with you, gentle reader. Look at it again.
You can't really see the pop, but it's there. Best Choice Cherry Cola. Aah yes, the little things in life, bringing myself joy.
Do you ever try to get the groceries in one go? Do you succeed? What's your personal best? Or are you a sane person and just make two trips?
