Grab and go

Checkout lines are funny creatures. They stock them with impulse items. You usually see an array of candy, chips, soda and the like. The instant pleasure has to be relatively cheap and designed to not engender too much guilt.

The hardware store isn't all that much different. My local store, Joe's, usually has all of the above plus flashlights and a cheap cut rate tool bin maybe.

I don't know why but I had to chuckle when I saw single rolls of toilet paper now stacked in the serpentine line. In prior times I always bought a six pack when I purchased them but I guess that we are now dealing with a very precious commodity.

I think that this is a first. Wipe away!
