The pleasure is all mine~
-sis needs surgery but she is sick so they had to cancel
What kind of surgery is it, if you don't mind my asking? I hope the delay doesn't complicate her situation. =\
- Doing laundry is wonderful in and of itself, but what's even better is that while I was loading my clothes into the dryer, a woman just two dryers from mine asked if I wanted to use hers, since her laundry was dry with 45 minutes more to go. SCORE! Of course I offered to pay her back, but she declined good-naturedly. Nice people really do exist!
- We did another IKEA run since one of the parts to my brother's bookcase was defective. I assembled said bookcase in time for dinner. Felt good.
- Before heading home from IKEA, we stopped by the Trader Joe's near IKEA. Had a difficult time looking for things and maneuvering the aisles, since the place was packed
. Lines at the cashiers were long, too. However, watching our groceries being packed by this particular middle-aged employee was worth all the negative aspects of the trip, and then some. Seriously. It was INTENSE
. The man was a pro, and I imagine he's won several bagging championships had he deigned to enter any. Not only was he fast, but when the cashier couldn't keep up with the scanning, he looked over the items coming up and you KNOW he's organizing things in his head, and he even rearranged the stuff that's already been bagged for the best possible weight distribution. We had a cart full to the rim and pretty tightly packed. He got everything into four (4)
bags. I was there with my brother and his girlfriend, and all three of us were holding our breaths from when we realized that we were in the midst of a Master Bagger up till the moment when the Master set the tray of mushrooms into the last bag and lifted it into our cart in triumph.IT WAS AMAZING.
