I automatically wanted to visit the Daily Prompt grid, the place that I have been visiting for the past 8 years, where I always found something to write about. Sometimes the words did not suit me and often I had to have a look in a dictionary to see what it was all about, but now it is finished. I only found a traffic light that was permanently switched to red. Traffic lights have a habit of turning red, just when you want to go further. Undaunted I decided to go further as I even got a promise from WordPress that the archives were still there to examine and choose from. Unfortunately they omitted to say that the archives were also eight years old and had nothing new.
Now I have been summoned but not fetched, no-one wants me. Where there is a will there is a way, and so I delved into my own archives. As I was leaving the supermarket this morning I noticed there was a special offer being held for roses, 2 for 9.90 Swiss Francs.
Why not 10 Swiss Francs. Was this one of those public relational tricks to make us think we were buying a bargain because they were 10 rappen (Swiss for cents) less than 10 francs. I bought them all the same. They were in plastic pots neatly packed in a plastic bag with a hanger to carry them. I decided why not, I can put one pot on the table on the back porch and the other in the front porch. When they are finished I can plant them in the garden and hope that they will grow and flower again.
I managed to lose Mr. Swiss in the supermarket this morning. I said in a loud and clear voice I will go and buy some mushrooms. He looked at me from a distance and that was the last I saw of him for at least 15 minutes. In the meanwhile I collected a few other items, like various vegetables, cream and some cold cuts nicely packed in plastic. Suddenly I saw Mr. Swiss again, hovering around the butchers section. He proudly told me he had bought the meat for Sunday which I was not so happy about, because that is something I like to choose myself. By each article that I buy I strike it from our joint cloud shopping list on our iPhones. Mr. Swiss was astonished to see that the list was almost empty except for the meat. Whilst he spend 15 minutes buying one portion of meat, I bought everything except for the meat in the same time. I would add he had the trolley and I only had my walker, but it is amazing what you can pile into those walkers.
I know this is boring, but believe me I had a real exciting time in the supermarket and I wrote this without a prompt.Who needs a prompt when daily life can be so exciting.
And now I must go, I have places to see and to go in my wheelchair. The nice thing about not having a daily prompt is that I do not have to bother about including pingbacks in my writing.
