My blasted superpowers are out again

I spent today grousing mightily over my lack of the following abilities
  • teleportation
  • time freeze
  • ability to be in more than one place at the same time
And it kills me that the way I made my ridiculously overscheduled calendar work without majorly dropping the ball (so far as I know) was to put off going to the grocery until after my meeting after school today.

Because now I'm going to go up there and buy, among other things, bread and milk, which items we legitimately need weather notwithstanding, and everyone's going to think I am one of The Wintry Mix French Toast Posse.

Boooooooo.
