As soon as I woke up, I checked my phone. Then when I realized that it was dead, and remembered that it'd been dead this entire time, I dashed over to the wall to plug it in. I don't know why I dashed. I could've just walked. It's amazing how quick you pick up these habits. I went a month without using this thing, and all the sudden it felt like a sin to not have it on, open to the world. Social re-integration.
After I double checked that it was charging, I went over to the kitchen and threw the empty box of food in the trash. Then I went into the bathroom brushed my teeth and took a shower.
When I got out, my phone had enough charge for me to turn it on. After about ten seconds of waiting to see if I had any missed texts or calls, I went and took out the trash and replaced the bin with the final fresh bag. I would need to go grocery shopping soon. I would go today. I had no plans anyhow.
Then, I vacuumed the place, changed the sheets, and organized my laundry hampers. I thought of doing a load of laundry, but when I counted my quarters I realized I was just two short. I'd get some while grocery shopping.
I stuck my wallet and keys into my pocket and went to fetch my phone which was at over 50 percent battery now. And on there was two missed calls from Jackie.
Outside, I walked towards a Kransz Mart and gave Jackie a ring.
"Yo. What you up to today?" he answered near immediately.
"Nothing much. Walking to Kransz Mart actually right now. You?"
"Going shopping? You got a car?"
"Well let me pick you up then."
"I'm already walking there."
"I'll meet you there. Then I can drop you off at your apartment. The Kranzs Mart near the highway right?"
"Yeah. You sure?"
"I need groceries too. You saw my fridge." Jackie then laughed. And I recalled what his fridge looked like and giggled.
"Okay see you soon. Thanks."
