Well I hate to go shopping in the first place,

live in an area where there are way too many people,

too many cars, buses, bikes (both kind),

just too much to stress me out before I even get there.

Finally after being in traffic for hours to just go 10 miles,

I make it to the worst place on earth for me.

The prices of the Kiwi this week..... what are they kidding me?

Oh look hon, I like those fresh peaches, wonderful if they taste sweet?

The melons are only 89 cents a pound today, oh and look, fresh garlic bread warm and tasty.....

Cinnamon rolls, pop tarts, chicken breasts,onions, potatoes not bagged.

Cold drinks, Popsicles don't forget, oh and bade.... what about my French Market coffee.... such a treat.

Then off to the paper isle... my partner loves that isle.... oh baaaaaby look, Kleenex for just a dime....

the toliet paper is cheaper if we buy the 24 rolls.... where will we put all this.

Don't forget the Red Bull, I have to have one a day for some reason.

Vitamins A,B,C,and E.... then the Feverfew for the headaches that make me blind.

Allergy meds for those bad nasty air days, toothpaste, deodorant and I think that is about it.

Quick grab that place, there behind that man/woman, with the hair from hell.

Phew what a day, and then we still have go to the electronics store.......

shit... thats another poem..... LOL...

Thank you Tim..... loved it...

Fun post Renee!! It's such a relief to read light poems occasionally...and in my opinion, you should test Miranda's game, could make it interesting!!! Or you could do as I a map of the store and plot your course, be there when it first opens, run through the doors, grab a cart, do wheeley's around the corners, racing up and down aisles while tossing purchases in, make your way to the cash, pay the person, grab the bags and STOP THE CLOCK...WHEW!!! A new record...All done before anybody else can tick you off!!!!... That was fun!...I have too much time on my hands to plot strategic courses in my day to day life...all in the name of avoiding bull****!!!!!! \0/ Thanks Renee, Nancy

Renee, you would feel so much better if you played my favorite grocery store game...CART RAGE! All you gotta do is see how many people and displays you can "accidently" run over. (My best score is four people and two displays in one trip.) It makes grocery shopping much less stressful and much more fun (until the manager asks you to leave, that is). :) :) :) :) :)
