A Grocery Store Edumication

August 26, 2008

What I learned at the grocery store this week:

1.       You should never ask an eight year old for advice on what type of beer to buy, especially in the grocery store where everyone can hear.  It just looks bad.

2.      Who are these women that arrive at the grocery store at 5:00 with their workout gear on (having just finished up at the gym)?  I prefer to think they are ladies that lunch and have no kids, no job and lots of time and money.  However, in reality I am sure they have 3 kids, successful CEO jobs and simply arose at 4:00 AM to start work early so that they could workout in the afternoon and be done in time to go to the grocery store before picking the kids up from Mensa practice.  I am not bitter just jealous….well, maybe a little bitter.

3.      When you circle the cheese display 5 times while talking to your BFF on the phone, the guy at the meat counter begins to stare and wonder if you have a slight obsession with Parmesan.

4.      It’s not nice to block the plastic bags in the produce section, just remember that there may be others who want the organic red onions so get your bag and move out of the way.

5.      I think it’s funny that the contraceptives aisle is right next to the chips and wine aisle. 

P.S. This has nothing to do with the grocery store but let it be known that Chad refused to allow me creative writing time on the computer last night because he was playing poker on-line.  He did offer me the option to type in between hands but it’s sort of hard to concentrate when every 2 minutes you hear that annoying “check” computer noise.  “The sunlight poured in to the chaetae as blue birds sad idly waiting for….CHECK CHECK, BEBAY let me on I have pocket ACES, forget your stupid story.”  So it’s all Chad’s fault if my writing career never takes off!

    He must have been playing with Jon. We had to rearrange the kitchen so that he could make dinner while having the computer in front of him. (note: I am not lazy..I had been to workout and was doing laundry at this time). I also do not care for the beeping noise that it makes….3 really fast “beep beep beep.”

    Another computer! That’s the ticket!
