Minor problems

It’s a family tradition. When the four of us visit Eureka Springs, we check into our cabin in the afternoon, visit a favorite restaurant—and then stop at the grocery store for supplies.

Stopping at the grocery store always takes longer than expected. I pick out the mustard for sandwiches, but Jay puts it back and finds the kind of mustard he prefers. Jerry asks if anyone wants pickles or olives, and Mary Elizabeth and Jay answer that they don’t. But, Jerry does, of course. So, he hunts for the aisle with the pickles. Then, Jerry decides that we “need” ice cream, and Mary Elizabeth, Jay and Jerry carefully consider the options and negotiate at length about what to buy.

Finally, I look over our list and declare that it’s time to checkout.

Minor vacation problems! How wonderful it is to have to worry only about what kind of ice cream to buy.
