At the big grocery store, one last time, to get a new prescription for Dad and a last load up on food and any other critical supplies I can find for my parents. There’s definitely more missing from the shelves, and many more people (men) shopping who have no idea where anything is in the store. But there is also a surprising (to me, as a New Yorker) generosity of spirit: employees working together to find stock that is misplaced on the shelves, and customers willing to fetch a newly re-stocked item for a stranger online and next at checkout.
