Grocery store time again! I told myself I was going to a different grocery store because it was closer to some other stops I had to make, but truth be told I was hoping to get more pics for the blog and thought a different location might yield more results. Turns out I was wrong about that because not much in this particular store caught my eye. I did manage to snap a few shots, though:
Ah, sausage gravy. Just like Grandma used to freeze.
Things started picking up a bit when I zeroed in on all those little add-on geegaws that hang from the shelves all over the store. Like this for example – I love how these “Glam Gloves” reach glamorously down for a roll of toilet paper. In defense of rubber-glove glam, I believe the toilet paper was two-ply with aloe:
This weird, aisle-specific impulse item tapped right into my twelve-year-old boy humor:
Then this one really got the adolescent giggling going:
You can find this in the aisle marked “Late Night.”
Now, I get the eco-friendly functionality of this next item, but the “Before” graphic really did me in:
Dude, just EMPTY THE BIN already. Plus the “After” bin is totally empty, so I call foul
After mis-reading the label here I immediately whipped out my iPhone to Google what, if any, new piece of Save-Texas-Women-From-Their-Own-Feeble-Minds-and-Naughty-Lady-Bits legislation might had been passed overnight to mandate such an ESSENTIAL item:
Panty Essentials – Welcome to Texas, ladies, now plug it up good!
Once I got that straightened out, it was time to pack up and leave. But not before this happened:
Hard to argue with the logic here
I actually saw this one on my way out the door but chose to pass it by as I’d already put up my phone and had a cart full of groceries to deal with, plus it was in a high traffic area and stopping to snap it would have jammed up the customers. But by the time I’d loaded everything into my trunk it was bothering me so much not to photograph it that I went back inside to get the picture. On top of all this, the store had Coke 12-packs on sale for buy 2 get 1 free, and there was Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Mint ice cream in abundance so overall, I’d consider this trip a success.
My mom is obsessed with those balls for the dryer. As far as I can tell, they do nothing except get lost in your clothes and inevitably poke you while you’re trying to take a nap on a fresh and warm pile of laundry. But I’m all in for that frozen gravy.
After the frozen gravy you will definitely need a nap on the laundry pile
You have me looking now…if you didnt notice on the other side….you do crack me up…daily
I loved that grocery cart pic!
I enjoyed this post made me smile
I went back today for a quick trip and had to laugh at the dryer balls again
