The hurricane messed with my errands yesterday. So, I went grocery shopping tonight and came home with my smallest bill yet. Not because of couponing or buy-one/get-one deals. Oh, no. Because of lack of food.
My phone died before I could snap a pic of the produce aisle sans produce. It was an eerie sight. Bins upon empty bins. Shelves that were always filled with fruits and veggies – empty. Then I turned down the meat aisle. The center racks were empty. Sale tags looking lonely. Venturing down the frozen food section, I convinced myself that there was no way those shelves could be empty. I was obviously wrong.
Takeout will have to do. Until I realized half the restaurants still didn’t have power.
Always be prepared, people.
