So does everyone else

I ran to the grocery store after work to grab a couple of things. My wife wanted a bag of ice so, that was on the list. I get the few items that I needed and paid for my stuff, ice included. Once I got home, I realized that I forgot to grab the ice on the way out of the door. So, after I eat dinner, I head back to the store. I walk in, receipt in hand, and head for the nearest associate that I see (who was in conversation with another store associate). As she turns to me, I nod at my receipt. "I've got a bad habit of buying ice and not grabbing it on my way out of the door." I said. She chuckles "Ha! So does everyone else..." as she turns back to her conversation. I was laughing as I grabbed that bag of ice and headed out the door...…

Time

Another totally random post... I'm now attempting to wear a watch, which is something I've never really done. Except when I was eight (or so, probably older but, I can't really remember when that was) when I had a Dukes of Hazzard watch that had an alarm sound of "Dixieland" (the melody of the General Lee's horn...). So, whats my main reason for wearing a watch? Eventually, when smartwatches become a worthwhile purchase, I'd love to have one. If I can't stand wearing a normal watch now, I'll never properly enjoy a smartwatch if I ever get one. Speaking of smartwatches, so far, they are mostly disappointing. The Galaxy Gear 2 is pretty cool but, not anywhere cool enough to justify the price tag. Soon though, I think there will be a worthy device to wear on our wrists. ;)…
