NEW YORK – not always easy to ask for help.
One of my best friends in New York is self-quarantining, and she asks friends or two to shop for her. I down with spending the money of others and I’d be helpful, especially when the entire country seemed to be waiting for the dreaded surge of cases to cause. For me, this is a win-win. In addition, she has good taste, so her shopping list will have a lot of ideas for me. I just discovered the homemade peanut butter. I will never go back to the jar anymore. It is a win-win-win.
Not bad for a few hours ‘ work. This task also gives me the opportunity to give people a snapshot of what it’s like to live in New York City, the city that these days always appear to sleep. We are the national epicenter of the epidemic. I don’t have a yacht or a large pile of water to retreat to. I like my city through, and I will not go anywhere. I’m going to ride it out. On that note, I have a 5-point survival Food Shopping Guide, which I hope is useful regardless of where you happen to live. So that is a win-win-win.
So far, so…
