So, no, I am not going to write about Instagram. I am not going to write about my own misunderstandings and misconceptions about it. I am not going to write about frustration with technology. That’s too negative and makes me seem older than I am.
Instead, my walk to the market has revealed Today’s Perfect Moment.
It has been one of those winter days that makes you forget about the bitterly cold, grey overcast days that makes you hate winter. The sun was out, shining brightly as it melted the snow and revealed that grass still existed on the planet. It was a great day to get out of the house, if only for a little while, and take a walk.
Normally, I do not shop like my friend Chris, who is a “surgeon” at the store. He is in an out faster than anyone I know. I am not a slow foot either, but I do look at multiple items just in case there is something I want. Today, I cruised by the coffee section to see if they had anything from Vietnam. I checked out the frozen food section because there is some Korean food I really want to try.
Lastly, I checked out the Chinese food take out section. They used to sell samosas, spring rolls, and those Chinese donut things there. Suddenly, one day last fall, that ended. I wasn’t devastated, but I was a bit disappointed. I worried if they were told not to make them anymore, or whether they weren’t good sellers–though they were usually sold out before the store closed. I have checked back many times, but they never returned.
That is until today. Today, they had some vegetable samosas. I couldn’t resist getting some of these three-dimensional triangles of deliciousness. Are they good for my health? Unlikely. Are they good for my soul and happiness? Undoubtedly. Are they Today’s Perfect Moment? Absolutely.
