Today, Cub Foods was so packed it was like Trump was making an appearance. I patiently waited, with my cart, to get through the baking aisle as Zevia was just around the corner ON SALE. It is several days before Christmas and half the store must be stalled right in front of me looking for sprinkles. I suddenly saw a man bend down and grab a container of No Salt off of a lower shelf.
I shouted “Oh that’s where it is! I have been looking for No Salt for years here. I didn’t notice it until you bent over”. The guy stood up and in a very thick Brooklyn accent said” Thanks! Its been awhile since anyone noticed me bend over”. I responded “You’re welcome!” And then we both started laughing.
These 2 older women turned to look at us and wrinkled up their faces like ewwwww… like we were hooking up in front of the Cake Flour. Apparently, today, the baking aisle was serious business and our banter was not acceptable midwest humor. My east coast girlfriends would think it was funny and know it was harmless. Good to laugh today. Good to laugh any day.
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all that jazz…..
