Oatmeal…I eat oatmeal…almost every morning…I’ve started buying the mega container…seems like the sensible…and cost effective…thing to do…so on a recent trip to the store…I reached out…took a container…from same the shelf I always do…only…to discover…after a few bowls…something wasn’t right…yeah…it took a couple of bowls…I was distracted…okay…geez…any way…I investigated…to find…old-fashioned…not…quick cooking…displayed prominently on the box…no wonder…they seemed a little chewy…hmmm…
But…did that teach me my lesson…no…of course not…last shopping trip…I reached for prunes…now…that’s simple enough…no need to inspect the package…prunes are prunes…aren’t they…well…yes…except…when…they are…orange flavored…of course this was discovered…after…opening the bag…and realizing…I really don’t like orange flavored prunes…
Bertha…naturally…points out…that…these grocery faux pas…are a lot like the events of my life…sometimes…I get in a rush…don’t pay attention to what I’m doing…take action…and…don’t get the results…that I am anticipating…
What can I say…she’s right…I’m taking it to heart…hopefully…I’m learning the lesson…it’s almost time to shop again…
