What I learned about shopping late on a Sunday night
They have no bananas. Knowing my eating habits depend on fast grabs and easy fixes, I stopped at a grocery store on my way home to pick up easy eateries: bananas, crackers, apples, and microwaveable lunches. Alas, they had no bananas. I was distraught and, like the Muppet chef, I walked the aisles singing the song.
I learned that the early shopper gets the fruit and the late night shopper is out of luck.
It's disheartening, too, because I enjoy the quick potassium after or before the gym. Lesson learned.
Happy Valentine's Day. I imagine that all the sweethearts of the CNY area will receive bananas from one another to celebrate the love. That must be where they all went.
