Eggs and Gasoline

I got up this morning and went to my daughter’s place. She of course was asleep and had forgotten that we were going to run an errand today.

One of the local restaurant suppliers decided to sell their unused produce to wait staff and other restaurant employees. Daughter doesn’t work in a restaurant but her roommate does. We drove down to the distributor’s location and picked up a huge box of fruit and vegetables.

It happened that we were mere blocks from my clinic so I was able to pick up my last round of meds too. The roommate paid for them for me. She gave me $20 so I had change.

The girls also needed juice for their vapes, so we went to 7-Eleven. While I was buying daughter’s juice, roommate went out to the car and filled my gas tank. I didn’t ask her to do it, I was touched.

When we got back to the apartment, roommate insisted on splitting the loot. I got rice, eggs, fruit, and salad makings. The generosity of these girls just blows me away. I didn’t mind driving them for their errand, I didn’t expect anything in return. But there you go, sometimes people are generous.

I made it home in time to attend my online support group. Online is a little awkward but it’s better than I expected. It was a nice moment of normalcy in a world that seems strange.

Also, we had corned beef and cabbage for dinner. I happen to love corned beef. So good. And I had rice for afternoon snack. Now all I need is to figure out desert, lol.
