shopping and what not

20 Mar

i have a bad habit of feeling ready for a nuclear disaster after scoring an 8 pack of canned tuna. i guess i feel this way because each can is then turned into a different dish –
tuna with pasta,
tuna with rice,
tuna sandwich and so on

i can stay away from the grocery store for 8 days and well,
8 days is a long time.

But the other day i went to the grocery store and as always, the giant food warehouse was filled with all sorts of curiosities, from plastic cutlery to spices in packs to giant bags of bird seed stashed under the broccoli display,  as if to say,
hey animals!
put your differences aside and
come together for a squall of a moment and
you can count on us as
a place to come and get it.

    And don’t forget the avian-like prices—cheep, cheep, cheap!

      Your puns know no bounds Allan – beautiful! Hey, this guy at work told me today about edible bird nests, apparently sparrows. The saliva they use to make the nest is extracted and used for soup or something to that effect. I guess the less dependent on grocery stores, the less expensive it all becomes. I caved this afternoon and bought frozen pizza and beer to usher in the first day of spring.

        Thanks, Steve. Bird spit soup, huh? Pizza is a much better choice, no matter the season.
