I did find some chocolate the other day, only about 6 steps away! I'd forgotten I had good chocolate stashed away in a cupboard. But someone else had discovered the last bag of Halloween candy and I found it opened in the pantry, so I helped myself to a few tiny Hershey bars.
The next day went so much better. The chocolate must have magic powers! I had to go to the big town for some business (small town banks are not as helpful as they used to be), and I:
- Found a parking space at Trader Joe's. They always have such tiny crowded parking lots.
- Accomplished the business at the bank with a person who was actually helpful.
- Exchanged Ernest's brand-new tie which had a water stain on it.
I did get caught in the rain at the market when I got home, but that's actually a good thing since we need the rain so desperately.
