おべんとう おえて ぶらぶら ありがとう

Recently my wife bought a nice lunch box for me. So of course, I have to bring lunch to work more often. At first, I was against it but after a few weeks I’m really starting to enjoy it. I don’t have to spend my lunch break looking for food then quickly eating it. Instead, I can casually walk around downtown. I usually start my lunch break by taking a short ride on the bus to Fort Street Mall. Then I buy some bottled tea for the walk.  After that I’ll wander through the farmer’s market looking at all the fruits, vegetables, and knick knacks. If there’s no market, I’ll walk aimlessly around downtown enjoying the views. Twice a week however I do have a goal. I walk to the post office to mail a card to my wife. It’s because of her gift I can walk around during my lunch break.
