I hurried home to meet my mother. She had bought me groceries and said she would be over at 2 P.M. I was running late.
"Why the hurry?" Big S asked me.
"Mom has bought me groceries," I replied as I started to walk away.
"Must be nice," Big S said.
I chuckled, but mostly ignored the facetiousness in his voice. It was a short thirty minute walk home beneath a glorious sun. Winter, for us, has been warm so far with beautiful sun filled days with nary a cloud.
I much prefer my mother buying my groceries. I know that sounds lazy, but buying groceries was the most anxiety filled experience for this social anxiety riddled soul. Mom always buys me an eclectic mix of microwave meals that I so enjoy. She also buys me two cartons of my favored cigarillos. I live a sheltered life.
The new heatsink/fan combo I installed on my computer seems to have done the trick. The computer was barely usable and now it has been running nonstop since last night without an abrupt restart. I can forego buying another computer till next year. The computer is so much more quiet as well. My old fan sounded like a 747 taking off. It was aggravating.
