Lend Me Your Eyes, I Can Change What You See

I bought a pressure cooker today, mostly because I didn't want to take the trouble to roast the two chickens that I had in the frig since Saturday.

And I had a coupon.

It cost me eighty dollars not to roast nine dollars worth of chicken.

Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More
Awake My Soul

My guess was that she was helping out her grandmother which was confirmed through the conversation that I could hear. My guess was that she was about twenty.

I first noticed them while they were sort of blocking the aisle that I wanted to get down. I didn't blame them though because it wasn't their fault Kmart puts some of their shelving units too close together. I didn't want to disturb them so I walked around the other way.

She was trying to figure out what the difference between the two eight inch nonstick frying pans. I thought it was slightly odd that the grandmother was the one that needed help picking out frying pans. She was patient, kind and was explaining everything in simple terms.

She reminded me that I should be kinder to my own family.

I read on Wikipedia that Mumford had Steinbeck references in a couple of their songs. Interesting.
