I saw a charge on my bank account that ended up being a crossword website I bought a membership in last spring. During distance learning, I wanted my students to be able to do a crossword I built there. I forgot to unsubscribe. Ugh.
When I see things like this, I remember Janet (from college) telling me about how her banker brother said: “People like this will never have any money.”
I unsubscribed yesterday. Goodbye, monthly charge of $5.
At around six o’clock I got a call from my friend and co-worker Josh. He was at Costco and saw a great sectional couch and decided to get it. The only problem was that they wouldn’t hold it until today. He called and asked if I would meet him at Costco, load my truck, and could swap vehicles. I headed out right away.
By the time the truck was loaded, it was getting dark. I’m hardly ever out after dark. How exciting!
I pick shampoo almost exclusively by the smell. I’ve been using the same shampoo for a while now. It’s Dove brand, and it’s supposed to be based on what various cultures around the world do for beautiful hair. This one is supposedly a Hawaiian formulation. It’s something-something coconut water and lime. It doesn’t really smell like limes, but it is a nice smell.
I recently went to the store to get a new bottle of it, and noticed a change in the label:
How interesting. Perhaps “rituals” sounded condescending?
