Kim wrote the list. I did the shopping. Not once did I have to call home and ask which brand of yogurt or bread to buy. Kim knows that if she gives me a little leeway, I’ll eventually figure it out.
The only item on the list that gave me problems was the 6 volt battery.
Our church leaders continue to stress the importance of having a 72-hour kit on hand, and that’s how many hours I would have spent trying to locate this flashlight battery on my own.
But a kind gentlemen working the fabric section directed me to to the secret lair of battery stands near the lotto machine. There, on the bottom shelf, just down from the hearing aid batteries was a couple of 6 volts for the taking.
It’s been a while since I’ve been so excited to finally locate an elusive grocery item.
The last time was probably the night I spent 30 minutes playing hide-and-go-seek with the lime juice.
*Note the small tears to the left of each item. The true sign of a shopping pro.
