Do you love to shop? Are you one of those people who can go into a department store and look at everything in every department? (Hello, Marcia!)
Marcia is one of my sisters. She loves to shop. A trip to a mall is an all-day affair. She hits every store in the mall whether she needs anything from it, or not. Even if she goes into a store not needing anything, she always seems to find something that she didn't know she needed. Uh-huh.
You know the type.
Marcia's husband (let's call him "St. Jack"... you'll soon know why) goes with her to the mall.
Sometimes he stays in the car and takes a nap. Sometimes he stays in the car and reads a book. Sometimes he follows her into the mall.
Does he follow her into the stores? No. St. Jack finds a bench in the mall and while Marcia is
window shopping, he people watches. When Marcia comes out of a store and goes into another, St. Jack moseys on down the mall to another bench, and then another... and yet another. St. Jack never complains, never hurries her, never whines. Somehow, he manages to keep up with her and they leave the mall (some hours later) together.
I don't like to shop that much. Oh, unless it's a grocery store. In a grocery store I can (and do) hit each aisle, each counter, each freezer and fill up a cart faster than you can say wholefoodstraderjoeswegmanskrogervonsalbertsons.
What could be more fun than that? Grocery shopping online, of course!
The WWW has become one ginormous supermarket! Can't find proscuitto in your little town? No problem... find it here. Need some berbere for that special Ethiopian dish you're making? No problem... find it here.
You probably have your favorite online food vendors, but if you're like me, you always have time to take a look at another one. I found this link today and thought I'd share. Enjoy!
