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.
