I have a master list of post topics. Usually, I don’t need to fall back on it because I get the best inspiration in the moment.

I Fired My Nurse

The inspiration for this post came this afternoon after an experience at the grocery store. I hate grocery shopping with a firey passion for a lot of reasons which mostly involve the people I encounter there.
