DIARY FOR MARCH 21

March 21

It had been almost a week since I last shopped. In the refrigerator the food was becoming less and less. So I email the landlord asking if he would drive me to shop and, to my excitement, he replied very promptly and told me that he would be heading for shopping in just 15 minutes. So I hurriedly finish my breakfast and got into his truck on time. We reached the supermarket named Costco about 20 minutes later and I found this is indeed a huge marketplace, with a wide variety of products, some of which I had never seen before. Within about half an hour I had selected my stuff: romaine, cucumber, rice, apples, bananas, eggs, watermelon, corn, broccoli...All of these produce cost me 88 dollars, which is about 500 RMB. However, as I stood there to check out, I was told that I had to have a membership card, which would cost me at least dollars, or I could use a card of others who had to be present there. So I tried to look for Fred, yet he was not there. I started becoming worried because, not bringing a cellphone and without the memory of his phone number, I had no way to connect to him. So I walked around there, praying hard that he would turn up as soon as possible... Thank God. Suddenly he appeared and as such I successfully checked out, put the stuff onto the truck and went back home.
