It wasn't exactly pleasant - it was stressful, actually.
Running errands and buying groceries on a Saturday morning is usually nothing but pleasure for me. It was different this time.
My first stop was my pharmacy. Among the items I was looking for was toilet tissue. They were sold out.
My next stop was one of my favourite grocery stores. I was pleased to see they were very well stocked in all departments. In fact, canned vegetables were on sale. I picked some up.
I then found they had toilet tissue. No one was fighting over it.
One guy grabbed two packages while I took one.When I arrived at the checkout, there was a young woman in front of me. She also had one package of toilet tissue.
I asked her if she was tempted to get more. She said, "No, in fact, I was just wishing I had a mask to put on because I don't want anyone to know I'm buying toilet paper!"
She was joking, of course, but did feel the need to explain that she really needed it. I believed her.
Keep being friendly, Moose Jaw. We're in this together and we'll get through it together.
