Somethings Are Just So Obvious.

Yesterday I met with my friends, as we do on a weekly basis when possible. Yesterday on my way to the meeting place I popped into the store where I purchase seed and food for feeding the birds.  In the store I just shoved them all into my shoulder bag in no particular way, just into the bag and out of the store. 

In Scotland we do not get given a bag to put items in unless way purchase a bag from the shop or bring our own with us.  In England it depends on the size of the store. In one shop you get offered and free bag while the store next door asks you to pay for it. Some things seem so obvious, have a rule and stick with it, all shops or no shops give bags for free.

On arriving at the meeting with my friends I removed all the packets of bird food so that I could flatten them and put them back into my bag in an ordered way. "What is that said one of my friends?" "Bird food," I replied. Now the silly question. "What are you going to do with that?"

I will not tell you what I said because somethings are just so obvious.

Somethings do indeed seem just so obvious.   What will I do when I leave this computer this morning? Obvious get out of this computer chair.
