So there is nothing to drink in this house. I have a few bottles of water left and that’s it. I got on Instacart that I am still kind of learning how to do. But, then I remembered that my credit card no longer works when the card is not present. I was STUNNED by the sticker shock. Everything is crazy expensive! The weather is about to get ugly and I really needed to check the mail to get the new card. It’s probably been out there a couple of days. It was there and I’ll handle that crisis later. But, I thought since I was already having to go up and down the stairs, I’d make a quick run to the yellow store. It’s just a little mini store that is usually full of people scratching lottery tickets.
Things are actually cheaper at the yellow store. Anyway, I could barely get in and out of my street. Cars were lining the road and I could not figure out WTF was happening. At first I thought it was a funeral. But the church of the corner was passing out food. Did I mention the bottom is about to fall out of the sky? It was 2:40 when I left. There were a couple dozen people in a circle probably to pray before the food drive opened the gates at three. Meanwhile, it’s a four way stop and people can barely get through. OPEN THE DAMN GATE ALREADY!
But it was REALLY sad seeing so many people in need of food. Usually the people BEG you to drive into the lot and take food. I went through once because the guy was insistent. I seemed like they were desperate to get rid of all the food so they could go home. There was nothing really substantial in there. Like I got two huge bags of ground pork rinds. WTF is that for? It was weird stuff. This was a long time ago. They did it all through Covid. It breaks my heart that people can’t afford food right now. I had sticker shock on Instacart and was asking myself if I really need all the gatorade and water and Kombucha. I am just a tightwad. These people literally can’t afford to buy food.
Something’s got to give. Things are WORSE for my neighbors than they were doing Covid. I hope all of you are hanging in there. It’s raining now. I hope the people they made wait so long still get fed. 🙁
So what’s going on with y’all today. Anyone have any good news? It’s getting to the point I don’t even want to read the news. Do we really have to know the complete list of everyone who has died, and then later what they died of? The Anne Heche news just keeps getting worse. It’s all so depressing.
