Most people don’t have feelings either way when it comes to grocery shopping. It is a chore that has to be done and that’s pretty much as far as it goes.
Many people HATE grocery shopping. They just can’t stand it.
Many people really enjoy grocery shopping.
And then there are those of us who simply ADORE grocery shopping. It is one of the highlights of our week!
My dear friend Wendy shares this bizarre passion.
To us, grocery shopping is an adventure! We check out new produce, new products, casually go up and down the aisles. We check out the grocery store staff.
And we check out our fellow shoppers. Sometimes this can be an amusing experience.
Sometimes it is a disturbing reality check!
I have not yet introduced Wendy to the concept of kosher food shopping in any great detail. It’s a lot of information up front. I think I am going to have to ease the poor kid into it gradually.
I’m sure there are all kinds of psychological reasons why we (and people like us) get such an unbridled feeling of joy when we shop for food.
I am even more sure that Wendy and I could not care less what those reasons are.
