Shopping Relief


Survived Georgia’s initial remain-home and 
watch-movies decision while Cathy ’n Gran 
were shopping; it may’ve been a mission to 
test my resolve, but then the idea palled on 
a thought she might miss a Bunnings visit - 
reconsidering involved no stress that we’d 
discern, and she was up running to dress - 
without a display of contingent regret 

To suggest it was not an ominous occasion 
may not be too far from the truth although I 
am legacy to a new level of consideration - 
the good faith embraced by a staying here 
choice erased all manly gains professed in 
relief of being freed from their girly’s quest
