The Great Unwashed

The Great Unwashed

As a kid, the highlight of our family’s weekly visit to the grocery store was being able to hang over the side of the ice cream freezer and inhale frozen air.  For some reason, I thought it pretty cool to suck in frozen air until the insides of my nostrils stuck together.  Looking back on it now, the pursuit of frozen nostrils seems to be why I never learned the general price or availability of certain grocery items (thus forever rendering me useless at “The Price is Right”).   Perhaps that’s why, as an adult, I’m fascinated by the types of things you can find at the grocery store.  I’m not just talking about the 100 varieties of olives or the 60 types of cheese, I’m talking about stuff like the “overripe bananas” bin at my local grocery store.  The winner this week:

 The Great Unwashed

Uncleaned lettuce? I just always assumed it was unclean.  New thing learned.

  1. I am all about the overripe bananas! The way most people eat them, they aren’t sweet yet. It’s once they get brown that they’re yummy!
