It’s no secret I hate grocery shopping. Imagine my distaste for shopping in the day or two leading up to a major food holiday, such as Thanksgiving for example. I went to Lunds yesterday morning to pick up a few miscellaneous items. And let me just say it’s a good thing I was in a good mood, that my kid was happy, that I wasn’t in a rush, and was thinking only happy thoughts through the store, because if anything had been slightly wrong in my world, I probably would have gone majorly bananas during the shopping trip. The place was a zoo- although nothing compared to what I’m sure it will be like today. The store was teeming with old people- and I have NOTHING against old people!!! But couple the elderly shoppers with the soon-to-be-elderly checkers and the already-elderly baggers/carry-outs*, and that makes for some VERY long, slow-moving lines. Again, I must reiterate it was a fabulous blessing that my kid was in a good mood yesterday morning.
I pity the fools that will be out grocery shopping today. May I suggest a glass of vino or a mild sedative before you enter the store.
*I must give props to my awesome carry-out man!! He noticed my ginormous plastic sack filled with plastic bags taking up the entire back end of my car, and asked if he could haul them inside the store to be recycled. Because no matter what, I always forget to bring them in with me to shove into the plastic bag recycling bin.
