Death by Shopping

9/11.  If we could have known then, what we know now…we thought that was about as catastrophic as it gets.  Who knew.

Appropriately, it was grocery restock day, once an ordinary, mundane activity, now fraught with apprehension and death.  Most people were masked and distancing; predictably, the one person who wasn’t was the one acting rude and defensive, like, how dare everyone show her up for what she was.

We have our routine strategy down, with all precautions in place; yet it still causes me the same anxiety each time, knowing just a random encounter could kill.  Death by shopping, what a pathetic epitaph!  So far we’re still around.

Between that mentally exhausting exercise and the travesty that is trump, I could only take a few photos, but quantity isn’t everything!
