Nice Place To Visit

After a long day of hanging around shopping malls and a Barnes and Noble or two, I like a little something to eat before heading home to start dinner. Naturally I head to the local Whole Foods Store, where one can usually score some healthful and even exotic free samples.

I guess it's been a while since I've stopped by WF. When I expressed surprise at the new layout of the place a stockboys said, "We did this back in February. Where've you been?" I lied and said, "On a diet." Ha.

I'm not sure why they felt they had to redesign the place. It seemed like the same old stuff: overpriced organic produce, Paul Newman's fake Oreos, lavender-scented eyepatches, crappy "indigenous" crafts you'd only buy as a desperate last-minute gift for someone you don't know or like very well. Plus plants and "natural" makeup. WF is one-stop shopping if you're into looking like you live off the land.

I did notice the new aisle signs. I was shocked- shocked!- that the pure hearts at WF actually labeled one aisle "Candy." And I was mystified by the aisle marked "tinctures." What, exactly, is a 'tincture"? And what kind of person would buy one? Sounds likes something out of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Anyway, hors d'oeurvres. Today I had Swedish Farm Cheese and some coconut curry dip on Italian crackers. Also a chocolate chip cookie and a handful of"veggie chips," which tasted exactly like potato chips. So they were okay.

Anyway, DIH must now turn her attention toward the kitchen. Dinner will be early tonight. I have to got to church later for my gun safety class. I am really looking forward to it.

A gun safety class at church. Wonder what Sen. Obama would make of that?
