It’s time to shake things up a bit. Hope everyone has had their morning cup of java. This is shaping up to be a beautiful Saturday.
Beautiful, if it weren’t for a scheduled safari to a no-frills, membership warehouse store. Where bargains are to be had–if you’re persistent, and don’t mind buying in bulk.
Such trips are moderately annoying. Moderately annoying, because opportunities for people watching, are only secondary, to people watching at the airport.
Finding convenient parking spaces, in the warehouse’s giant parking lot, can be frustrating. Maneuvering giant shopping carts around gawkers, talkers, lingerers, is a thrill ride. Check out lines can stretch from here to infinity.
Free food samples are a plus. That is, if it’s something you have a taste for. Spam and mango chutney, would not be my first choice. I learned my lesson long ago, when I remarked–“Look Dear, they have twenty kinds of beef jerky.” She gave me the evil eye, walked away, and said nothing. Apparently, she didn’t share my enthusiasm for beef jerky.
What is the L-A-F? L-A-F, is the Least Annoyance Factor. L-A-F applies to everything in life. Call it “laugh” if you are so inclined. I use “laugh” a lot. Please, use “laugh” as it was meant to be used–because, if you don’t, that would be annoying.
