I must have offended the errand gods somehow, as today's outing was completely inefficient. I needed a new passport photo; Walgreens' photo printer was down for the afternoon. I needed one copy at Staples; the machines were packed. I needed several sheets of holiday stamps; I waited in line for the self-serve machine at the post office only to be met with a friendly message on screen that it was temporarily unable to fill stamp requests. Will started crying, so I just sighed and called it a day. Maybe tomorrow will be better?
