NYC is dangerous.
First I want to say - I really do try to save money. I truly do. As such this morning I decided to go to Duane Reade and buy cans of Diet Coke to keep at my desk. I was going to buy a six pack. It's cheaper than spending like $4 a day on soda.
I suppose the real solution is giving it up entirely but I am not there yet.
I walked into the store and went to grab a basket. They were stacked about 7 feet high.
And they almost came crashing down on top of me. Shook me up a bit. Then there was much drama with the cashiers helping me pick them up. Craziness.
Then I saw that they had 2 12 packs for $7. Score! I only have to walk a block so it wouldn't be so bad. As I loaded 2 packs into the basket of death one of the cashiers let me know they don't have any shopping bags.
Really Duane Reade?
So I wound up at McDonald's buying a $2 fountain soda.
It seemed more dramatic when it happened than it does when I recounted it!
Anyway - here's something I know is not all that exciting. My breakfast:
Back at lunch. If I avoid further calamities that is.
