Morning Jaunt Comes Full Circle

I didn't know what I was doing at the time.

This morning I woke up to a quiet house. It's Memorial day, the kids were up late and I was the only one awake. The St. Louis Cardinals scored more than six points so that means 50 cent coffee at Mobile and I needed a couple things at the hardware store. The stage was set for me to unwittingly step into my fathers footsteps.

After setting up the sprinkler to water the front lawn, I jumped in the car and went to the hardware store. It was just a regular morning doing a couple errands. I stopped by the gas station for some coffee and donuts for the family.

Did i mention I was wearing this shirt?

I pulled up the the house a deliver the goods. After I sat down with my coffee and read the news it hits me. It hits hard.

I just did a morning jaunt.

It wasn't my plan, it just happened. How...why...Is it in my DNA? I don't know.

You may ask, what is a morning jaunt? The Full Jaunt occurs when the following sequence of events happen. For me, this morning I only did a partial jaunt, you will see why...

  1. You must have access to slippers or sandals, there can be no laces involved. Put them on.
  2. It's best to have an old tee shirt of some kind, not a strict requirement.
  3. You must leave you residence before anyone else is awake.
  4. You must purchase coffee.
  5. The full jaunt requires a stop at a store, probably one open 24h because most jaunts occur pre-dawn.
  6. As a bonus, if you get back before people are awake in the house you qualify for the Super Full Jaunt.
