…but certainly not *for* Black Friday. It’s 7:30 AM, and stores are either openING, or have *been* open, but I’ve been sleeping and just woke up a half hour ago to fetch a Dr Pepper from the vending machine and have a bowl of Solani tobacco. Way to start the day!nnAt 9:00 I will make my way up to BP and get a pack of Lucky Strikes and a pop, but what I *need* is instant coffee, which I may not get until tomorrow. I figure on a Saturday morning, just after the sun rises, wouldn’t be a bad time to make my way to Schnucks for coffee (and other things), so I will do so then.nnBack later
