I just realized something terrible.

Horrible even.

Something that I didn’t plan for.

That’s right, tomorrow is my Monday shopping day.  Memorial Day.  A day when people should be at their homes or cabins enjoying their BBQs and beer and not be jam-packed on the streets of my local town.

Unfortunately, I have lived up here long enough to know that the odds of that happening are slim to none.  Believe me, I have tested fate before with the assumption that I could get into town on what should be a fairly calm day only to be slapped back into reality.

So now I must plan my strategy.

I only have 2 places that I need to go, unfortunately they are both smack dab in the middle of town.


Yes, I know, I could just skip tomorrow and go next Monday.  Believe me, this time of the year it doesn’t matter what day you go, the place will be swarming with people.  Plus, I’m not about to change my plans because of a couple thousand crazy people.  Nope, I will be strong and vigilant.  I will stand up to them.  I will smile and be polite.

Most of all, I will go to my happy place.  My Utopia where nobody can piss me off.

And to avoid being killed by people thinking that they are driving the Audubon, I will use as many right turns and stop lights as I possibly can.

Yep, sounds silly, but it is the only way I can see to make it into and out of there alive.

Wish me luck.
