I Neglect My Family for the Good of the Blog



My wife had the audacity to suggest that I ought to have gone grocery shopping yesterday afternoon, instead of taking my paddleboard out for a spin, because we had recently discussed the grocery list and the house was lacking in several basic items . . . and if she would have told me to go shopping, I would have done so without complaint, but there's no chance that I would take initiative and do something like that on my own, especially since the kids were at their respective after school programs and I had the opportunity to paddle around on the river . . . and think of what I would have missed if I went to the grocery store instead of the river yesterday: some of my best real-time content ever.

That's a remarkably jaunty craft to be sighted on the Raritan. It doesn't even have a bullet hole.

Food store?? Is that a North Brunswickism or a Melanie-ism? Do you also call dry cleaners "ironing stores" and restaurants "eating places"? It's a grocery, people.

Whitney....Did you get that comment at the snarky store?

I have no idea why I call it the food store. That is really what I call it, all the time.
