Of course, having zero interest in the world of sport, I didn't even realise that it was the day of days for balls being kicked through big sticks until I overheard someone at the supermarket mention it. Whether that was the reason for the lack of people or not I don't know.
It may have been the reason why we ended up with a checkout operator who was one of the worst packers I've ever seen (and that's saying something).
When we got back to my place, Ma did what is rapidly becoming a habit and wandered down the road to get a coffee while I unpacked the groceries.
We really didn't have much that we wanted to do beyond some minor errands, but since today's Photo A Day word was "errand", it seemed fitting enough (even though I've been a day behind since Thursday... but I intend to catch up as soon as I finish this post).
So the day essentially consisted of me going in search of duct tape (and as an aside, why do we call what Mythbusters always describe as "duct tape", "gaffer tape"... and then duct tape is something else entirely... confusing) and Ma seeking out a new shower curtain.
Thrilling I know.
There was other stuff... after stopping at Bunnings for the aforementioned duct/gaffer tape I discovered that I'd actually left my wallet at home... so that pretty much put any plans for buying anything must else on the backburner. Yes, I could have borrowed money of Ma, but there really wasn't anything I wanted.
And really, Ma suggested that we head to West Lakes, and that's always a little bit underwhelming. It was mostly fine though... although for a supposedly more "upmarket" area the shopping centre does seem to contain more than the usual helping of what may or may not be cashed up bogans.
So that was it really... other than a brief trip down the street to buy some bacon to make a BLT for dinner (I only thought of it after I got home).
Ma did make the first rumblings today about starting to think about Christmas shopping though... so that could become a thing.
Oh, and for the record, I have no idea what's going on with the photo at the top of this post... as far as I know it's taken in some sort of Russian sex museum or gallery or something (in the shop part, clearly) and I think these guys and some of their buddies were hired to be... naked? Generally weird...
