I love watching what people

I love watching what people buy at the grocery store. I sometimes get so distracted looking at what other people are buying that I forget to unload my own basket for a minute, and there's this awkward moment where I realize that I'm standing around like an idiot. It's especially interesting for me to go to a regular grocery store, because I usually shop at a Co-op. There, it's like, "Hey, nice tahini. Did you get those Okara patties on sale?"

But at a regular store, people buy the craziest assortment of stuff. It's so cool. Like the guy in front of me bought 3 lemons, 2 limes, 2 avocados, and a bottle of ammonia. My guess is that he has really dirty floors and loves guacamole. I also saw a lady buy Goober. I didn't know anyone bought that stuff! Me? I bought peanut butter, an organic salad mix, bleu cheese dressing, Rice Krispies, 2 bags of mini marshmallows, and ant killer. You do the math.

Random thought #1: Felicity is the best show. Why is it going away?

Random thought #2: There is no feeling worse than longing.
