Do Not Eat Your Grocery Store List

Grocery store lists. Everyone makes them.

When you’re done you crumple and trash.

Possibly you eat the evidence.

Or maybe you forget it in the cart letting someone else reap the benefit of finding this treasure.

I found this beauty in Safeway and promptly snatched it up with glee.

It’s intriguing. A piece of paper someone wrote. The possibilities of who they are in my mind. Story fodder. It’s fun. You’re a detective.

Some thoughts…

I feel by the use of shaky cursive the writer is an older female, 60s or 70s.

I applaud the choice to narrow down the Lean Cuisine selections. Clearly this woman knows exactly what she likes.

I wonder if “alcohol preps” refers to medicinal or intoxicating uses.

In case you haven’t spotted it already, the bracketed “Hemroid Sup.” and “Analsol” tell me these purchase were crucial. I hope she found them. These two items caused me to have a giggling fit in the middle of Aisle 6.

One day when I am old, maybe I will make lists like this.

Until then I will analyze the ones I do find.

And so, the moral of this blog: Do not eat your grocery store lists. Because I will find them. And write about them.

    BIG LOVE your way, Jules! I haven’t eaten mine yet, but have had to destroy a few lists that had some damaging evidence that I didn’t ever want to find again! Beer always seems to be at the top of the list.

    I hear they go down more smoothly if you coat your throat with Analsol first….
