I bought 5 litres of hand sanitizer. It made perfect sense at the time. The last time I made a mistake like this was when I bought 10kg of flour. Three weeks later a tiny ecosystem emerged from the bag. Some of it looked alien. Here’s the problem with buying in bulk, there’s always a price vs panic dilemma. Too much of anything is bad, but a lot of something is good. Today has been a Saturday of contemplation. My only friend here ditched me for a trip to the hills. I came straight home from work, bought a large pack of fruitopies, and I am now deep in thought, about my life, my experiences and my wishes. The next half of my life will have to be a planned one. There’s no escaping it.
