Elderly man at the park earlier, confirming an unfortunate reality I have noticed in my new neighborhood: “I just wanted to thank you for picking up your dog’s poop. I’ve been coming to this park for four years and I think you’re the third person I’ve seen actually bother.”

In other depressing news, I just went to get some ice out of my freezer and realized that somehow it didn’t shut properly last time I opened it, which would be at some point last night. I didn’t have a TON of frozen food, but I had some good frozen burritos from Trader Joe’s, two packages of tempura chicken and a package of kung pao chicken, so I am displeased. Blech. BLECH, I say!
