I Did a Bad Thing.

I went to the grocery store and it wasn’t an emergency. We had food. But we didn’t have the right food. I needed mochi.

So I put on my face mask and I went to H Mart and I got 24 mochi. I also got ramen, a foodstuff that I’ve heard a lot about but have never eaten. And I got a jar of Kimchi. I am determined to learn to like Kimchi.

H Mart, for those of you who don’t live in a diverse neighborhood, is a national chain of Korean grocery stores. The one in Koreatown Plaza in Los Angeles is AWESOME. The one in Williston, Long Island, is OK.

While I waiting in line behind a plastic barricade at the check out, I had a revelation. I figured out why it’s called H Mart.

It’s called H Mart because K Mart (for Korean Market) was taken.

In Korean, Korea is called Han-gook. So, voila: H Mart.

Believe me, after two weeks of self-quarantine, this is deep thinking on my part.

I hope you all are finding ways to laugh at least once a day, and doing something that makes you feel creative, and reading something that gives you a whole new inner life, and watching something that is beautiful and inspiring.

And, oh yeah: Fuck Trump.

And because we need something to make us go Awwwwwwww……

And finally:

 

See you on Friday!

    OK, I did not know Korea in Korean is “Han-gook.” That’s VERY interesting. And yes, it does explain H-Mart!

    I sighed audibly at the picture of Michelle Obama. And yes, I “awwwed” at the baby rabbit.

    I think you probably did need to go to H Mart to get those mochi ice creams. That is good figuring out about why it’s called H Mart, I’m impressed!

    Good advice to laugh each day, so something creative and watch something nice.

    All your Fuck Trump posts are spot on. It is pretty scary looking at the US at the moment, the impression I have is that the virus there is almost unstoppable….with such an idiot as your president. It’s incredible to contemplate how differently it would have been managed by Obama.

    Thanks for the Wednesday post! See you Friday (or maybe Saturday morning my time).

    Awww. A woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do. Hope you were masked up and savor every mochi! Good funnies today. Except they aren’t funny…
