In February, I mentioned my new handy-dandy shopping app (isn’t it nice not to have to type “application” all the time?) on my iPhone.
Yesterday I learned — not for the first time and not for the last time — that there is trick to using the app.
The trick is, I have to look at the list while in the store. Before I left the house, I put two items on the list: pencils and bananas. That’s it: pencils and bananas; bananas and pencils. No matter how you count those two items, they add up to only two items. How hard can it be?
I managed to buy the pencils but not the bananas. In their place, I had a plastic water pistol, a tote bag and a cylinder of sour-cream-and-onion potato chips.
Yes, we have no bananas. One must look at the list if one wants to buy everything on the list. It’s always something.
