  • Going through the checkout :)

    So I went grocery shopping this weekend. I get all my goodies and put them on the belt. Then I'm standing there going over what I'm buying, mouth watering furiously, and I start noticing people around staring at my pile with that judgemental look like "oh look at him, thinks he's mister organic". All I could do was grin proudly back at them. Anybody else feel a strange sense of pride when they judge what you buy for food?

    I know I do. I'm a fat guy (one month on primal) so it is fun watching people stare at all my vegetables and real food (ie meat) instead of bags of chips, frozen crap, and baked goods. I was at the store on Saturday and the woman behind me and the cashier were both asking me questions about all the vegetables I was buying. I had no idea buying vegetables was such a good way to meet women. If only I had known this back in the days of my youth.

      Every time I buy veggies at the grocery store (which is not often, I normally buy them at farm stands and markets) I try to get at least one in there that makes the cashier dive for the code book or ask "what is that?"

          I used to. I think its normal at first. Eventually the novelty wears off.
          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

            That's every time I go to the store. "That's ginger, right?" "Are those habaneros?" "I didn't know we sold these."
            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              I have a hard time not looking at what other people are buying and thinking "how can they eat that crap?!"

                  Guys who cook are really appealing to women. It's a secret.

                    I hate when the cashier (or anyone really) notices what I'm buying and says stuff like "whooo's cooking toniiight?!" or.."looks like sooomeone's making breakfast!"(in the case of bacon)... ... its like srsly.... just because I'm buying veggies or bacon or what have you doesn't mean that it is out of the ordinary for me to be cooking... ...wtf are they implying anyway... really... /rant... :-P...

                      My personal favorite is the occasional cashier who will ask me what I'm eating, because it can't be the stuff I'm buying.

                        That's part of the fun of shopping now. Playing stump the chump with the cashier is the highlight of my time in the grocery store.

                          I've started noticing the food people put in their carts definitely correlates to the way they look. When I see lots of frozen dinners, chips, and soda I know I'm going to see someone who is morbidly obese. That alone is enough to steer me away from those foods forever now.

                            I get funny looks as I paw through every package of bacon looking for a pack with a good meat to fat ratio (I like it pretty meaty). One guy said "it's just bacon dude" and I said yeah, I bet you just drive a car too huh? He shut up. From time to time two of us in a row will be in the same checkstand line and when our eyes meet after surveying each others selections, we both grin. Kind of like the secret handshake.

                              The cashiers at my local grocery store are always asking my opinion about the various meats and veggies they sell. I've got a reputation; they're astounded by the quantities of veggies, meat and eggs I buy.
