I decided to go to the market and see what caught my eye for tonight’s meal. It seemed like a great idea at the time. Plus there wasn’t a lot of food in the house for some odd reason. Mostly because grocery shopping had not happened when it usually does. Now you may be wondering how a person misses a usual and routine thing like shopping for groceries especially since food helps to keep you alive.
Apparently since I’m not a fan of grocery shopping I managed to miss doing the routine for some reason. And some how the idea of going to the market seemed so much better than grocery shopping. Yes friends I do realize it works out to being the same thing, but hey you have to do whatever it takes to make the less pleasant task more tolerable.
So I went to the market only to realize that not growing up in a place where markets are a regular thing I have somehow missed certain skills. Skills like well placed elbows; how to snap your fingers to get the next number; how to get the best deal and the best way to cut in line without anyone getting too upset with you. I mean these are life skills I should have had under my belt today at the market. I have a bruised instep to prove it!
I came home more weary and bruised than I should have. But I had lovely fresh produce to prepare and a wonderful idea for my meal. The only real problem was that I had no energy to cook the meal.
So maybe on top of market skills I need spare energy! Oh wait, lupus would just steal it!
