See, the grocery stores close at 5 pm on Saturday and don't open again until 8 am on Tuesday. I went this morning in the hopes that perhaps it would be calmer than I knew it would be this afternoon or tomorrow.
No such luck. But at least I got the things I needed. No saying what is likely to be left by tomorrow afternoon.
For those Americans out there who have no idea why it's a holiday, let me explain. It's Whit Monday. Never heard of Whit Monday? Before last year neither had I. I had to look it up.
Those Europeans will use any excuse to close down for a holiday, won't they?
