Technology is amazing. No doubt about it. No contest.
Most of the time.
But not when you're a guy.
I'll go out to run some errands and I'll offer to stop
by the grocery store. We'll need milk and peanut butter.
By the time I get to the store, 17 new items will have
been texted to me.
Stuff we need, but not how much we need.
Stuff we need, but not what kind we need.
Stuff we need, but not what brand we need.
I craft a reply.
12 or 18 eggs?
Regular ground beef, lean ground beef, or extra lean
Duke's or Hellman's?
I'll hit "Send" on my text. Then I wait.
By the time I get a response, I've gotten impatient
and am at the farthest point from the item in question.
Every. Single. Time.
I do follow one rule with every trip to the grocery store
whether it is on the list or not.
Always buy bacon...
