No Vitamins

I found myself doing it again. Cart-spying. Have you ever watched the people in front of you at the big box store unload their cart and imagined what their home was like or where they were going? It hits me on the odd occasion. Saturday was the most recent occurrence....

The woman was about 65. She asked the checker if he could scan her package of steak from the cart as she was looking for her wallet. I noticed the counter only had two other items... One bag of pitted prunes and a "large" bottle of Black Velvet whiskey. (I don't actually know the breakdowns in sizes.) That was it.

Perhaps she was on her way to a delayed New Year celebration. Or maybe off to snuggle with her cat for the evening in front of her fireplace. I do hope she wasn't going to finish it off by herself.

What???? Prunes don't count as vitamins?

Grace said...

SpiritledWoman is so correct!

Let's all eat more prunes this year!

I'm trying to get that "prunes 'n' whiskey" image out of my head...a potentially dangerous combination, in my opinion! hehe

In other news, I'm now listening to "Let It Be" on your blog, reminding me of My theme song during my dating years with Jed- don't ask... :O)

She maybe was a bit stopped up and whiskey and prunes will definitely do the trick. :)

BTW I am a nosy cart person. I love to see what others buy. What does that say about me??

Maybe the prune was her version of the olive in the martini!!

Trying to envision prunes, whiskey, and steak all rolled together in some type of a casserole dish. Yummy. A sure to be big hit at my next covered dish dinner.
