Today is shopping day, and for the past 4 weeks I have greeted it with trepidation. Shopping is not my job usually. As OH is on the endangered species list, now I do it. Quite why I feel nervous is hard to say. Generally it is had been a well-ordered affair. Perhaps that is why. I am not well ordered, it is not my natural state, but I realise that this is the way it has to be. So when someone goes the wrong way on the one-way system, or encroaches into my space, or I see young fit people shopping in pairs, it makes me anxious. Not because I am worried about my health, or indeed OH’s, but because these people are ignoring the rules. Generally I am no fan of rules, but these particular ones are in place to protect us. Does this flouting indicate arrogance, stupidity, ignorance or absentmindedness? Or am I becoming intolerant? Or perhaps a little paranoid? Hard to say.
Thanks for the inspiration Kevin.
