This morning I walked Elaine to school, then set off up the hill via The Stairs, then across past more lovely houses, and back down the hill past the grocery store.
Of course, I picked up about $45 worth of other stuff as well, and just as I approached the cashier, I realized that I had my house keys and cell phone with me, but no wallet. So I smiled sweetly and said, "Wait! I have no money!" To which the cashier responded, "You're optimistic, aren't you?"
But she kept my groceries as I dashed home and got some money. All is well.
Then I get Arthur's report card in the mail which contains sentences like, "He needs to improve his organizational skills." Ah, yes.
