me: "is today some kind of holiday i didn't know about? or is there one coming up soon?"
we find a spot, head in and dodge and weave around the people, their carts full of preservatives. and high fructose corn syrup. and milk.
at the front, they have a lane roped off and a store manager directing people to the different checkout stands. bella gets antsy, so we leave joel in the line and go look at the valentines day displays. as i am walking back to the front of the line, where joel is paying, i over hear a lady talking to another lady in line. her cart is overflowing with doritos, little debbies, soda and plastic cups and plates. nothing is remotely nutritious and none requires refrigeration. just as i am thinking we are headed for a nuclear attack, she says, "we hadta git ready for tha snow, ya know"
::palm to forehead::
people? we are in middle georgia. if it snows here? it most likely will not accumulate. and if it does? it will be gone in less than 24 hours.
plus also? heaven forbid we go 2 days without doritos and soda.
