The Objective: Run into Walmart, grab kitty litter mat and a copy of Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins because her books are more awesome than chocolate with a Dorito chaser, then run into Market Basket and grab mozzarella cheese and milk.
Grab kitty litter mat, still no copy of JOotG. Dammit.
Get outside to find it’s not just raining, it’s deluging. (Yeah, just making up my own words again.) Stand there looking stupid for a few minutes before realizing it’s not going to let up.
Sprint to car, then fish in purse for keys. (And, uh, the word “sprint” is open to interpretation.)
Crocs filled with water. Look down…
White t-shirt. Soaking wet.
I still have neither mozzarella nor milk.
Thanks to Fictionwise I do, however, have JOotG. I’m sure that will come as a great consolation to my guys when there’s neither pizza nor morning coffee.
