Get off my Yard, and Get a Haircute you Punk Kids!
Tomorrow (November 19th), as you should all already know, is my birthday. I can honestly say I feel old. I will be 24, but I still feel old and it is all a grocery stores fault. See, Suminodo Station just opened a Food World. Food World is the generic term for the basement of a building, usually a department store or train station, that is just all grocery market. They are huge. Suminodo (jewel of the Gakkentoshi line) now has one in the form of “Lucky Pantry”. I have shopped at the branch version “Lucky’s” for some time. They are a great import store. See the rich full life I live people? Well Dan and I went into Lucky Pantry and were bedazzled by all the food. We found pretzels, a cheese section, Hershey’s Chocolate, crackers, cereal, a smorgasbord of food that didn’t involve boned fish that you were just expected to eat around or eat. I was so happy to be in there and shopping. Shopping for FOOD! That’s when it hit me; this is what being old is like. This is like 10,000 times worse than when I was feeling old because my new dryer was coming and I was uber pumped. At least you plug the dryer in, so I could, kind of, sort of, justify it as an “electronic” device. But this is far worse. I was excited over a grocery store. I repeatedly said “This is the best store, ever!” And I meant every word. It is a GROCERY STORE!! It doesn’t really count as a “store” at all. At least that is not what young Andrew would have thought. Oh man, I really am getting older. How long until I am driving an hour to go to my “favorite” Wal*Mart despite the fact that there is one in town? How long until I complain full time about the neighbor’s yard? I am already bedazzled by new grocery stores, it’s only a matter of time before I can’t program the VCR. I mean the Tivo… Oh no! It’s already begun, I am talking about the VCR like it was cutting edge technology. I’m doomed… I’m old now… This may be my last entry, I may end up thinking that a computer wastes “too much electricity” and I can use that $1.35 a month for “more practical things”. Prey for me my loyal readers and only friends. Prey for me in the form of sending me lots of cool birthday presents!
