I like to do my grocery shopping on Friday evenings after work. Most people are quick to run home for the weekend and the stores are rather quiet. Additionally the flyer sales start Friday morning so I'm usually able to pick up some good deals.
Last night, as per usual, I headed out to the stores after a long week. Snow was blowing and the shopping centre was delightfully empty. I wandered the aisles and then my ears heard a voice.
Over here, Hi.
Take me home.
oh, I'm not sure, the cart is really quite full.
Help me please, I'm going to die. and I'm so pretty.
well, you are quite lovely I agree. But I don't think you're on the brink of death. Now those african violets, they really do look dreadful.
They're already goners, you can't help them. Take me instead. Before I meet the same fate.
so I himmed and hawwed and pondered, and then I remembered this. Thank you Frances for your delightful words of wisdom. Say hello to my new house buddy.
