Yes, I talk to myself when I shop

 

     They say you should never go grocery shopping when you’re hungry.  I’m always hungry when I go shopping. 

     I take my handy dandy little shopping list and try to stick to it.  Of course, there’s always those one or two or three items I remember I am out of and they do go into my cart. 

     “Hmm, chocolate pudding, don’t have any must need some.”  Into the cart it goes.  “How about eggs do we need eggs?  I forgot to put those on the list but I’m fairly certain we are almost out of them.”  Eggs go into the cart.

     “What the heck is this now?  I can’t read his handwriting.  Is that White Out?  I’m not at an office supply store for heaven’s sake—oh yeah it’s that stuff MT. Dew makes.  Okay got it.”  I load a carton onto the bottom of the cart.

     “Peanut butter.”  I snag a jar from the shelf and toss it into the cart.  “Crap, do we need bread?  I don’t have it on my list.  There might be some in the spare fridge.”  My cart is quite full by then.  “Oh, well if we do need some I can always do a quick trip later.”

  1. I think I shopped next to you last week. Are you the woman who bought treats for the dog next door because the dog asked you to?
    I have a different way of shopping. I make tidy lists and then leave them safely at home. But they are used to me at the store. If I am standing still and looking vaguely around they peek at my cart and tell me what’s missing. There are a couple of people working there that either know me incredibly well, or are telikenetic.

    LOL!
    In my case it isn’t only one dog next door telling me to buy cookies, it’s a whole bunch of them that walk by my house and EXPECT to be treated. I heard from them yesterday.

  2. I shop online. It’s ok to talk to yourself in your own living room.

    Yeah, you can always say you were talking to the dog…
