Super WalMart Soup

Six Father's Day cards
WalMart is cheap but busy
hurry before work

Thunderstorm and rain
mix with the parking lot sludge
soup in my flip flops

I don't love the Super WalMart near my office, but it's cheap and convenient and I don't have time to go to Hallmark or Target, my preferred card-shopping places. Plus Claude needs litter. Long live one stop shopping.

But after elbowing through all the other moms trying to buy all their Father's Day cards before rushing off to work, I ran out in the rain (with my 25 lb box of litter in hand) and sloshed a whole bunch of nasty parking lot puddles through the flip flops onto my feet. Yuck.

Oh well, the errand is done.

Enjoy some more Haikus!

And have a nice weekend. We're at our old house sans internet this weekend.

This is the one year I got all of my cards early. Waahoo!!! I hate the last rush for cards.
