As the mother of storms, Hurricane Florence, approaches the Carolinas coastline projected as a category 4, every store in the neighborhood of Cherokee Road not far from the coast: Piggly Wiggly, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, B&P, DollarTree, Discount Bread Store have sold out of bread. Walmart is on the edge of town and too far to navigate without a car and transit to get there stops running at 6 PM. Besides, I am not a fan of shopping or Walmart.
However, I have plenty of wine, coffee, rice, beans, tomatoes, flash lights, candles, batteries and, our favorite, vanilla cookies mildly heated (20 seconds microwave), served and dipped with your fingertips delicately into a small glass of milk one at a time.
I am excited about the storm I need to kick me in the ass to write again...
