COVID-19 Journal Entry #40

Adventure to Rexall

I went to Rexall today to get my flu shot, and it was an adventure, let me tell you. I walked there, and then I walked back. Whoo. There are some more details to relate that might make this tale marginally less boring. I had an appointment for a flu shot, for one. I booked it Sunday or Monday online, and I went on Friday. I took the first spot that was available, which coincidently, is the same time I like to go to Rexall – in the late afternoon. So it was mostly not very busy. I shopped at Rexall during the 5 or ten minutes I have to spend after getting a flu shot to make sure I don’t pass out. I didn’t pass out. I bought deoderant and razors and a wart-blasting kit. I needed aaa batteries, too, for my fake candles, but I wasn’t in the mood to pay $21.83 for eight, so I left those there. I need nine, so I was doubly discouraged. After Rexall I did a flit to Shoppers to see if they had batteries for cheaper, but no. After Shoppers I went to Winners, because it exists and wasn’t busy, where I found a massive bag of chia seeds for $10. I don’t know if you’ve tried to buy chia seeds before, but a big bag is never that cheap. It filled my container at home to the brim, so I’m pleased.

As I was leaving Winners, the Beep-Beep went off and I had to rummage through my bag to figure out what set it off for the benefit of the store associate. I got to show off my wart-blast kit, which had an activated taggy thing. Best adventure ever.

I took note of some amendments going on at the legislature on my way home.

I usually walk down this driveway. I don’t feel very encouraged to do that right now. I walk along the grass to the side with the roses instead (that’s sort of alongside the bus you can see there because I don’t realy show the roses here – you can sort of see them still surviving behind the fencing).
The new “ditch” feature on the legislature lawn, alongside the (currently empty) flower beds.
The legislature. While I took photos of keep out signs and ditches, most other people were taking photos of this. It’s nice, too. I’m impatient for their Christmas lights to go up. Fun fact: if I ever talk about walking downtown, I’ve probably walked past this, as it is in the way between my house and the rest of Victoria. I can avoid it, if needed, but it’s the shortest way.
