More True Grocery Adventures


Because I've lost a bit of weight lately (it's probably just the poverty and the crank), some of my clothes are a little baggy. I tend to buy clothes baggy because I'm not crazy about looking like a snausage whilst in public. But I wouldn't say I look like an original gansta with my pants riding low on my hips with some underwear flashing.

And I swear it's not because of all the diet pills that Barry Bonds lets me "borrow."

Anyways, I've got one hand in my pocket to make sure my pants aren't flashing a bit too much gotchies and I'm getting some sunflower seeds from the top shelf. For some reason this store believes that only tall people are allowed the rich goodness that are roasted sunflower seeds.

When a Meemaw (complete with a hump) said as she was bent over her cart at a 45 degree angle, "Excuse me, but can you help me reach the nuts?"

Without thinking, I blurted out, "Not while I've got my hand in my pocket."

Yes, she was very confused and didn't get any nut assistance from me because I hightailed it out of there.

My husband's family called them chonies (or some spelling of it).

But in private you enjoy looking like one? You dress up in a snausage outfit for the wife perhaps?

Just wonderin'

I'm glad I'm a girl. We don't have nuts, and if we flash a little gotchie reaching for the Planters it's considered sexy.

I don't really know where to begin. So many comment opportunities, so little time.

I ate a Snausage once. I'm sure there are a few inappropriate comments there.

And how are you losing all this weight, fer reals? Is this that roadkill diet?
