The good news is that I got a ride to the bank this afternoon, then stopped at Raley's and picked up some stuff, including some bargain meats, and then went to the Goodwill store and bought that office chair, which was not only still available but was priced three dollars less than it was yesterday. If I'd waited a couple more days I might have gotten the chair even cheaper, but odds are it would have been snatched up by somebody else first, and I didn't want to take the risk. $12.99 was cheap enough, anyway. The chair is indeed way more comfortable than the wooden kitchen chair with unstable, tie-on cushion I've been using. So, a good day (so far) despite the appalling heat.

The bad news is that I forgot to buy a loaf of bread yet again, but I did get a package of four sesame seed buns. The bad news is thus not all that bad, aside from the evidence it provides that I'm still getting stupider as I get older. I believe there is supposed to be some wisdom showing up at some point, but so far there's no evidence of that, unless of course the wisdom is in the awareness that I'm getting stupider. That would be a bit of a drag, especially since I was hoping that when I reached a certain age I'd be able to figure out what the hell all that literature I've read was getting at. I guess life is just one sad disappointment after another, so you should try to enjoy the few good things that come along while they last. Hey, maybe.... Nah! Couldn't be.
