gratitude-a-thon day 291: christmas shopping with jake 3, 642 miles away

Yesterday was one of those days, where once again I was amazed by technology.

I didn’t buy a whole lot of stuff in Spain, but I was sorry not to have bought some oil for Christmas gifts. So, I asked Jake to go to La Boqueria and get a specific oil at a specific place. I’ve only been asking him to do it for two weeks, but well, he’s 19. Anyway, yesterday he went and called me to find out where it was, and together, on the phone I directed him. He found the place, and then sent me a photo of the oil that I’d described, and boom, we were good. WE WERE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING TOGETHER. As Chris Farley said in his famous interview with Paul McCartney, “It was awesome.”
