I hope to be starting up with my Shop Talk author interviews again next week, (call me Slacker,) but until then, I thought I’d share this:
Dear Local Grocery Store,
While I do appreciate your remodeling efforts, please–do you know what all those constant changes do to shoppers like me, after it took so long to finally memorize where everything was?
I mean, honestly. Greeting cards where the milk used to be? Cheese where the ice cream was . . . ice cream where the bread was . . . bread where the greeting cards used to be? And prunes. Have you no concern for my digestive system? It took me forever to find them, since they used to be with the other canned fruit and is now sandwiched between the tea and coffee grinders. Tea and coffee?
Enough is enough. Please, end the chaos!
But, I must give you kudos for continuing to play the most rocking music in a grocery store ever. It was very refreshing to rap along with Blondie’s Rapture yesterday while searching for prunes.
Fab Five Freddy told me everybody’s fly
DJ spinning I said, “My My”
Flash is fast, flash is cool
Francois c’est pas flashe non due
p.s. Any clue what Francois c’est pas flashe non due means? The prunes are by the coffee, perhaps?
