PAIGE 159 - WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

Parcel man, parcel man, where have you been? Delivering mail, and packs of sunscreen. That's what he told me at least when he came, though not in those words. I said hmm it's a busy life for parcel men it sounds. He said yes.

But let me back up a little first. I'm out of groceries. And not being a doomsday prepper myself, when I'm out, I'm out. The only thing I stock in bulk is microwaves and standing fans, and now only microwaves. So since I wanted to do quite a big old shop, I called up the grocery people and made a big order. There's an extra fee of course for this kind of thing, but when you're sick, it's worth it. So I got myself some food, and waited for a couple hours, then Mark my word the parcel man showed up. I said ah my good old friend Mark how are you? He said that he was well. I also said oh by the way I'm sick so don't come in, just leave the parcels outside. That's why I'm standing way over here. He said no problems I understand hope you're feeling better soon. He also glimpsed in the room behind me, not sure what he was looking at. There was only a rug and thirty-two microwaves. He left the food and went off to Parcel HQ, and I went and had some lunch from the frozen meals, in my new microwave. Yes, you've probably forgotten which one this is when I say new. Well it's not that one I bought from the appliance store, this is the one from M and D. Thanks Mom, thanks Dad, it's a good future oven. Not as fancy as my newest old one, but good nonetheless.

I'm a bit tired of being stuck inside the house these days, I'm not super outgoing, but I don't like being inside for these many days in a row. Even though it's winter, I miss the fresh air (very cold at the moment too) and the hills and trees and everything. I'm not sure how long this cold will last, but I sure hope not for long.

I'm still a bit annoyed about missing out on that prize. I do wonder what it might have been.
