Not in Kansas Anymore

Empty Target store Yesterday was the first day I really felt like I’d left work. Before then it just seemed a long holiday weekend – something that would end in a day or two. In the middle of the day I’d walked across the street to buy something from Target, and not just any Target, but one the busiest ones in the entire country. And it was empty… I mean, there were maybe 20 people total scattered about the store including the staff. I wandered around, waved hello to an older lady with an oxygen tank (no joke), grabbed what I needed and walked right to the check out isles. Only one counter was open and it had nobody in line. I paid. I left. And that’s when it hit me that I’m really not in sync with the real world right now. It feels, odd.
