4 a.m. and I cannot sleep
Saturday, August 03, 2013
So I decide to take the dog for a walk, because all I've been able to think about since midnight is Ben and Jerry's and thank goodness the kid is spending the night at friends', or she and I would be on our way to the grocery.... But...I digress.
Yes indeedy. Dog and I were out in our little town snooping around and who should come barreling down the main drag in a pickup full of teens...at 4 a.m....... in a town so little they could not POSSIBLY have been up to anything good.....but the kid.
Well, the kid and at least 6 other teens, maybe more. I counted four or five in the bed and at least three in the cab. At 4 a.m., in podunk USA.
I am so glad I made myself a nice cold 4C drink before I left, and sat it beside an overly stevia-sweetened coffee, for my return. It probably kept me from making a 4 a.m. run to the all night grocery the next state over in search of Ben and Jerrys, Hoggen Daze and any other creamy sweet drug I could find.
Wait, that's it. Those kids were out grocery shopping for the parents. I wonder when I will get MY groceries?
