Back from Costco and Festival. Costco combines an open space so vast that a four year old girl ran happily up and down the aisles like she was on a playground and an abundance of stuff that would make even Qin Shi Huang Di gasp. It’s not stuff fit for imperial burial, except for all the polyester and plastic. They will last into the next world and beyond.
Shopping there involves navigation of a labyrinth designed to lead you to the Minotaur (the check out lanes) with as much of the abundance as you can fit in the superduper sized carts. I purchased bread, not just one loaf, but 3 2 pound loaves. Two 44 pound bags of dog food. 24 bottles of Propel. 4 pounds of 13-15 count shrimp. You can not buy just one; it would be unAmerican.
Festival supermarket has a bit more restraint, but it too involves navigation of rows and shelves designed for the impulse purchase of antipasto, squid, the odd pasta you have never seen before. Not much to buy there.
Final stop. Best Buy. I picked up Beatles albums–Sgt. Pepper and Beatle’s 1–so I could have When I’m Sixty-Four to play tonight for the Woollies.
Time for lunch.
