The house is just too strange to be in without Dawg so we’re getting away, back to nature. The tent is old but still holds off water – we put it up before the torrential rains of yesterday and yay, it’s dry inside. The sleeping bags are airing out and I think there was discussion of bringing an air mattress along too, for old bones. And wine. Lots of wine.
I made the dumb move today of buying a fancy Italian shampoo at Bedford Pharmacy, which is more like a boutique shop than a pharmacy, all kids of gifts and goodies, all high end.
Yes, it says with caper blossom extract. I have no clue what that even is. Worse, I didn’t see the price tag until I checked out. I bought a $1.00 local newspaper and this and when the bill came to over $30 with tax, I looked at the price of the shampoo – $28.49!!! Doink. At this point the woman behind the counter said the shampoos like Suave were further down on the shelf!! I guess she assumed my yikes reaction was because I couldn’t afford the price…. I didn’t want to (a) hold up the line behind me or (b) admit that it was ludicrously priced so I came home with the stupid stuff. It better be better than my Suave!
The sun can’t decide if it wants to be in or out. At the supermarket, where by the way I got called Ma’am (no woman likes to be called Ma’am!), the sky was pitch black. Now home, the sun is bright, but I spy lots of clouds coming my way.
Nothing else to report, other than I saw two seconds of Hillary’s speech at Wellesley. The nitwits at CNN were having The Big O over her speech, calling it the all new unscripted Hillary. Oh dear. Oh dear. They can not get over her loss, can they??
Happy Memorial Weekend everyone. Plans? Parades? Barbecues? Whatever you do, have fun. Hope the weather cooperates.
