Hunter Gatherers

Nowadays any time either Studly or I have to leave the safety of Doright Manor, venturing out to buy necessities, we come home eager to display our respective discoveries.

“Look!” I said this morning while proudly displaying a six-pack of two-ply toilet tissue as if it were a first place trophy. “Last one on the shelves!”

Yesterday he came home beaming, having found two small bottles of hand sanitizer at the pharmacy. “I brought you something,” he said, holding out one petite bottle, watching for my reaction.

“Oh darling,” I said, “it’s just what I’ve always wanted!”

We rejoiced and knew that like any good modern couple we have what it takes to survive in this brave new world.

Peace, people!

  1. Congratulations! I have yet to find hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol. Got bleach last week. There were 2 left and I, being a team player, left the other one for someone else. The sacrifices are real! 😉

  2. Ha! This is so absolutely true. With my Hubby, it is finding the best creative alternative to the thing on my list that he wasn’t able to find. Gotta say, he’s really doing an awesome job being the hunter/gatherer.

    1. That’s great! My husband made a frownie face when I brought home a different brand of milk than he’s accustomed to. I told him I only substitute when I can’t find the real thing. Since I’m doing 99% of the shopping he really had no idea what the grocery store shelves looked like.

      1. Getting my list together for Hubby has been an adventure lately. Brands, quantities, even an idea of what the packaging looks like for the less common items along with “This is critical” or “Can substitute for something” or “Skip if unavailable” types of notes for almost every item.

        Before all of this, I did most all of the shopping. He would often go with me or run and pick up a couple things here and there, but he never had to be the one to get everything before, so he has had kind of a steep learning curve.

  3. Nothing like hand sanitizer and toilet paper to bring out the love. I made a midnight run last night to pick up a female OTC from the pharmacy. Okay, it was actually 10:00pm, but it felt like midnight. I was considered a hero upon my return. – Marty
