We’ve not been finding that much stuff and that’s OK. Diving is a crap shoot so we take what we can.
We had to go into town tonight to actually buy some food for dinner. We had contemplated eating out. Problem is, unless we spend big bucks on dinner, fast food just doesn’t cut it for me anymore. If we visit one of the big fast food dining establishments we’re spending $15 for dinner and we’re both hungry 2 hours later. If we want a dinner that satisfies, we’re spending $30. I’m just not doing that anymore.
In fact, we’ve made the resolution, unless we’re traveling, we don’t dine out, period. Exceptions are anniversaries, birthdays etc.
So we stop at the local grocery store and buy some lobster ravioli with sauce and a package of bread sticks. That and some white wine (wine we found BTW) made for an excellent dinner.
A young man in front of us bought some food for himself. He was probably single based on what he was buying. He paid for it with an EBT card. The card wouldn’t swipe as the EBT system has been having problems. Much of the code written in the EBT system computer software is written overseas. That could be the problem here folks.
The cashier said EBT, very quietly, but I heard it. The young white man looked down ashamed and said yes.
My heart sunk. This was probably some working man who’d lost his job and just needed help and you could tell he felt like S*** for taking charity (many folks around here feel that way).
Of course I didn’t say anything, but I telepathically told him this. Don’t feel ashamed young man. You are a victim of a criminal rogue government that has outsourced all good jobs overseas. The only way many a man today can earn a living is bombing poor brown folks overseas. Your government doesn’t give a S*** about you, never has and never will.
Keep your chin up, don’t feel bad about taking help (lord knows you’ve probably paid your fair share in taxes) and keep thoughts of abundance and prosperity. I’m praying that that man tonight hears my prayer for him and becomes successful so that he never has to buy cheap pizza again.
