Sour Cream......

by Shannon Wylie
Zachary 8/30/95 - 4/27/96 (Age: 7mo, 27 days)
"He is so close, yet so far away"

Sun, 23 Mar 1997

Yesterday at the grocery store, I had to buy some more sour cream.(I love sour cream...YUM!) Anyway, I always look at the expirations date because I bought some before that was bad. My husband grabbed some off the shelf, quick looked at the date, and started putting it the cart. I looked at the date, and quickly put it back on the shelf. I said, "I don't like that date!" He didn't understand since it wasn't expired till April 27th. After looking at a couple more with all the same dates, I found one that had April 25th, and put that one in the cart. Pat(my husband) said he didn't understand why I picked one that expired 2 days before the other ones. I just kept saying I didn't like those dates! After being confused for a couple minutes, he asked me why. I had to reply, "April 27th was the day Zach died." Of course he knows that day all too well, but I guess just didn't connect with the sour cream. I know I must be crazy. But it's weird how things like that still bother me even at almost a year now. The "D" day is coming way to soon for me. Isn't there any way to stop time? Or in that case, turn back time, so I can hold my little Zach again? I miss him so bad.
