Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!

If we want good produce, we have to go out of the 'hood, as the grocery store a mile away has questionable fruits and veggies. Mostly fruits, but it's annoying there when you can't buy one head of garlic and have to buy a package of six.  Ditto with shallots.

So if we want good fruit, it's another trip.

Sure, sometimes we go to Whole Foods, but that means taking out a second mortgage. Normally we just head up to Heinens.  A great store, but no matter which one you go to, they have the shittiest parking situation ever.

And who knew there was anything new in the world of fruit?

Oh - it's probably not new, but I've never seen either of these things:

Some weird tangerine that looks like it has some skin ailment, like leprosy. They claimed to be sweet and they had a few peeled there to sample - so I did.  They were good, but I didn't buy any. I'm sure I'll never see them again.

And baby bananas?  Honestly, that is what the sign said.  They're totally a thing?  They were the only bunch on the table, so I'm not sure if the store only stocked one set or they were a quick sell-out.  Just for scale, I put my index finger next to one.

But next time a potential date says they can deep-throat a banana, I wouldn't get too excited by that prospect. It's all about asking the right questions.

I didn't buy these either.  It's all about size for me.

bwhahahaha (the baby bananas)!

perhaps the first fruit was stored too near a nuclear reactor.

My partner once got "scolded" by a Whole Foods manager for taking photos of the produce. It didn't stop him, just pissed him off. Which explains the picture titled "The Unhappy Grocer".
