that I'm a little bit nervous to take up driving again when I get home?
I haven't driven a car for almost 4 months now...
But today I missed having one. I needed to get laundry detergent, but the grocery store on the corner didn't have any liquid detergent. (And I would have purchased powder--ick-- but I don't know if it would mess with my landlord's machine, so I didn't dare.) This means that I had to walk 10 minutes in the annoying overcastness that is covering Paris to the other grocery store for a $10 bottle of laundry detergent. (Which, by the way, only costs like $3.50 at home). This wouldn't normally bug me, but I have a cold, so I'm all irritable, sniffly and tired already. Walking all over my chilly neighborhood just so I can come home and do laundry wasn't my idea of a super fun evening.
"Oh, please. Cry me a river, why don't you?" you're thinking. I know. It's not the end of the world. All I'm saying is that it made me miss my car.
I still think I'm going to walk to the grocery store when I get home. Go, grocery chariot, go!
