Guess I'm the scum of the earth

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Went down to the CVS to grab a pint of milk. "Is that ALL," asked the cashier.

"Well, yes. And I'd like a bag please, I'm on foot."

I might as well have mentioned that I had the plague. WALKING? In the suburbs? Walking for exercise is fine and dandy, but walking to the shops is well, so LOW. I mean, I could be one of those POOR people.

So I want to save a little gas and get some exercise. If I lived in an urban area no one would have thought twice about a block and a half walk to get a pint of milk.

Yes, I'm giving the tony suburb a bad name.

Go, me!
