It's the end of the month and that means payday and the need to check one's stock of staples and visit the grocery. I keep a running list. I love the note pads with the magnets which go onto the fridge. Then, as I'm doing something, I can write down what I realize I need. Of course, that doesn't work when I'm in the basement and realize I need laundry detergent and fabric softener. The joke about going into the basement and forgetting why you've gone there works equally well going up the stairs. "What was it I was supposed to remember when I got up here?"
So it was with no sense of amusement and frustration that I got home from the recent trip to the store, started to put away the groceries and realized, I have salt.
It couldn't be any more plain. There it is. On the top shelf of the cupboard. One whole container of salt.
Why is it that we don't see these things? Now I have 2 containers of salt. I won't need salt until 2025.
