friday december 12

today i was mired in the second day of a brutal cold and came to the end of my supply of kleenex. since i wasn’t feeling particularly enthusiastic about leaving the house to buy more, i kept one last tissue off to the side, saving it for a real special occasion, as if it was the last red starburst or something. finally, i geared up to walk down to the corner store to buy some more, treating myself to that final kleenex on my way out. as it turns out though, the corner store has basically no inventory these days for anything except junk food, cigarettes, and lottery tickets, so i returned home empty-handed, and had to rely on paper towel and toilet paper until i went back out and tried again two hours later.
