So I need to go to the store to buy some things for the housewarming party I'm going to.
I get all my shit together (jacket, bag, shoes, &c) and walk 4 blocks from the apartment before I have it cross my mind that, gee, a car means I can drive to where these things are.
EDIT: walked back for the car, went and dealt with the whole schlemiel in about 1/2 hour. Excellent.
And I bought a purple pepper plant.
