So I went to my local supermarket and bakery to buy my favorite: the sour cream (a.k.a. sugar rush) donut.
As I was standing in line, I noticed all the flowers for sale just outside the store. That made me think that it would be a good idea to go my local nursery today to buy my flowers, and beat the crazy Mother's Day rush this weekend.
That was a inspired idea. There were no crowds and plenty of flowers that had not been picked over yet.
When I went to pay for the flowers, I discovered my debit card was missing, and realized I probably left it at the bank ATM last night. So I drove to the bank, and sure enough, they had my card!
Driving back home with my ATM card, flowers and donut in tow, I saw that my gas gauge was low. I thought I'd better get gas, since I'm driving into Pittsburgh to meet my husband and go to a Pirates' game tonight. So I filled up my tank and finally drove home, satisfied with everything I had accomplished, all because I was craving a donut.
And who says donuts are bad for you?
