salvation consumption

My new shopping strategy is to shop at stores I really, really, really want to stay in business. I call it "salvation consumption."

One of Isaac's vocabulary words this week is "hiatus." It's on the blackboard with "spate" (as in "there's been a spate of armed robberies in our neighborhood this week") and alienate; I can't remember how alienate found its way into our conversation. But it did.

As for hiatus, I've been on one, from blogging at least, as the disruption in posts not doubt telegraphed. And I'm going to continue my hiatus. I plan to return. I don't want to predict when.
