Snow Bunny or Dummy. Snow Blindness or Dumbness

I get it. Snow for the past few days has made us giddy. Most of us don't have to work. All this "end of the world" stuff makes us feel alive and ready to party, and even feel like little children. An honest hooray for that.

But nothing has changed about the self checkout in a grocery store. You don't have to look at it like a deer in headlights. You still scan your items, place them on the scale, and when you are done, pay for it, and then pack it up to go. It doesn't require all your friends to help out either.

Then again, how can I complain when I come back from a hippy gathering in the woods, and I don't know how to do shit, or understand what civilization and technology are.

Thanks to the cop who waved me to jaywalk in front of him Foster road. On any other day, nope.
