Grocery Chats

Saturday, I went to the grocery store…I really don’t like going to the grocery store on the busiest day of the week! Anyway, I’m standing in line at the crowded check out, minding my own business, when a lady in the line next to me says, “You like the chunky, too?” As you can imagine, it took me a couple seconds to realize what she was talking about. I looked in my cart and saw the Campbell’s Chunky soup and replied, “Yes.” She then responds with, “I like the clam chowder.”

Me: Oh, I’ve never had that kind, is it good?
Her: It’s my favorite! You know they sell it in the little cans so you can try it.
Me: Oh really.
Her: Yeah, that way you can see if you like it.
Me: Okay.

It was so strange. She just kept kind of looking at me like she expected me to get out of line and rush to the soup aisle for the small can of clam chowder. :) Needless to say, I stayed in line.

Also, for all of you that are looking for a diet solution…evidently the South Beach Diet is great. This is according to another lady who was telling anyone and everyone who would listen that she has lost 7lbs. on it. So, for what it’s worth, the grocery store is an educational place!

Hehe you make me laugh! "You like the chunky too?" Haha, I would've lost it right there if someone said that to me. =D
