do not venture out of the house carrying only a small purse, and then proceed to purchase and/or procure:
-four christmas gifts
-one quart of apply cider
-five library books
-four pieces of dry cleaning
and do not - i repeat, DO NOT - forget to bring gloves along for the trip. because your fingers, your forearms, your elbows, and your shoulders? none of them will be very happy with you during the cold, windy six-block walk home.
