Haiku Poem – コストコで買い物

quarantine shopping
welcome to Disneyland
except no rides

(Jim Woodhull)
こんき ない かくり の かいもの かえりたい

I went shopping for the first time in about 3 weeks to Costco as my wife and I had run out of almost everything. In the three weeks between shopping trips things have changed drastically. Now on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 until 9:00 the store is only open to those over 60 years old and to those who are handicapped. It is a nice idea but because it is so busy there was such a long line that even though my wife and I arrived about 7:30 we never got in until after 9:00. Even though it was very busy outside, inside was not crowded at all as only a certain amount of shoppers are allowed in at a time. I would say about 95% of the shoppers wored face masks and hoarding was not allowed. Things like toilet paper and paper towels were only one package per customer and only once a day. I was so happy to be done and I hope when we have to go back things will have gotten back to somewhat normal.
