How many times have I started conversations with my kids, or arranged meetings, or gone somewhere to accomplish something- and thought I had a reason.  Sometimes, more than one reason.  I like it when errands are done with, like, at least three reasons in mind.

And then, you get the point when you realize that your reasons break down one by one, and finally… You’re at Target SuperStore for, essentially, whatever you see that you can buy and make it look like you didn’t discover that you were on a fool’s errand the whole time.  Poptarts and a diet Mountain Dew.  Y’know, like you meant to come in for that.  Maybe a Cadbury egg or two, in season.
