It’s the sugar and trans-fats that really get me going…

Upon request for more substantial posts because some of you require a fair amount of “reading material” while you’re “working”, let me tell you a little story about the grocery shopping trip I took last night.
First of all, I hate grocery shopping. If I could magically have all of my food appear on a whim, I would be the happiest gal in the world. I generally hate crowds, so the idea of having to smush around several hundred people that I don’t know doesn’t really appeal to me. I can’t avoid a good deal though. Thanks to the lovely Canadian chain supermarket called, Superstore, I am afforded all the bitchin’ deals I can fit into my cart.
I find Superstore to be an odd place. It is reminiscent of Wal-Mart, what with the generally high volume of women in pajama pants and dudes in sweats, and of course the good deals. I’d say take Wal-Mart and multiply its size by three and just fill it with food instead of your regular discount panties and knives.
Actually wait, I think you can buy both of those at Superstore too, but I digress.
This store is so big that when someone breaks or damages, or moves something, no one gives a second look. For instance, these are the following bizarre things we encountered while out shopping:
#1) A stuffed panda in the middle of discount Easter chocolate. Steve and I agreed immediately on its awesomeness, and proceeded to load the panda into our cart to be our grocery shopping mascot. Panda was later discarded by the pasta sauce aisle.
#2) A bag of sugar leaking so slowly onto the floor that it created a waterfall off of the shelf that it was on. Instead of trying to call for help, Steve and I proceeded to watch about a half litre of sugar pour out onto the floor.
And the best find (found in the potato chip and pop aisle): a ripped open box of Trojan condoms, and a ripped open box missing a disposable camera. Truly, we are living the Canadian dream when we can live out our wildest pornographic fantasies for free and without notice, simply by stealing all of your items from the potato chip and pop aisle at the grocery store. I love living in a developed nation.

    Ah yes, I also enjoy the Superstore experience. They’ve really stepped it up in the housewares dept. in the last few years. I go there more for ‘stuff’ than actual food. We don’t grocery shop that often. We prefer to waste money eating out.
