There were no reports of buildings “Lighting it Up Blue” reported this morning that I know of, but I was probably shopping at Walmart when they were reported. (Not even the currently tone deaf 1600 Pennsylvania Ave place.) That is good news to me. Anyway, it’s still almost all Covid-19 reporting. But, it was a new month, and we had bills to pay, and groceries to buy, as usual.
Normally, my mother and I go pay bills and do major grocery shopping at a bunch of stores. This month, however, we could bring it down to two stores. We still filled up our refrigerator and pantry anyway, even with the limits placed on us. We don’t panic buy. We never did. Fortunately, the people at the stores have finally taken the social distancing seriously. They were spaced six feet apart when they could be, and were only coughing into their sleeves (like me – I have allergies right now). Also, Walmart finally has traffic control. You had to go up one way on one aisle, and the other way the next. It took a pandemic, but Walmart finally has traffic control. I finally avoided the road rage I normally get.
Anyway, we could not skim down our bill paying sites, but we now know we can carry much less cash on us. That’s good news, I hope. We’ll soon be going out to get some mask making materials, and the yarn for the blanket I mentioned before. Anyway, we’ll be going back to chillin’ like a villain at home for the time being. We prefer doing that now anyway.
A couple Autism Acceptance minuses at the grocery stores we went to: at the Walmart, there were two shirts on sale, in the boys’ section only (bleggh), with puzzle pieces on them (double bleggh). Also, at Kroger, a woman was wearing a shirt, sanctioned by Kroger, depicting a ribbon of puzzle pieces on it (bleggh). So there is truth to the fact that we still have a ways to go.
Will somebody listen to us that we have chosen a new autism symbol of our own?
