Subject: BS: saddest shopping list
From: Davetnova
Date: 15 Sep 04 - 03:28 AM

I went shopping at my local all night supermarket last night. At the checkout it dawned on me that I had a very sad basket of shopping.

- One packet of dried cat food
- One tin of dog food
- One packet of chocolate biscuits
- One half bottle of whisky.

What does that say about my life? Has anyone got a sadder list?

Yes, I can't afford to eat cat or dog food never mind biscuits. From what you bought you can at least eat well and get drunk.
Best wishes.

Take the dog for a walk in the park, you may meet someone nice. Invite them back to your place for a biscuit and a tot.
Providing it isn't a bull-terrier or something, there's not much better for pulling.

A bunch of lilies and a black tie would be sadder, but in a different sense.

How does a dried cat manage to eat anything unless you use the whisky to rehydrate it. The cat that is, not the food. My local supermarket doesn't stock dried cats. So what's chocolate biscuit and dog food like together, and do you spread it on top of one or sandwich it between two biscuits to give a higher chocolate percentage?

How about

Milk
Marmite
Loo roll

Not at all sad in either sense. Just shows a sensible set of priorities - you feed the cat, then you feed the dog, then you have something tasty for yourself and pour yourself a good drink.

I hate the condescending way they ask if you would like help with packing, as if being over 50 means you've never seen a carrier bag before. I once, mistakenly, said yes and then spent half an hour separating the bacon from the eggs. They never seem to go back into their shells as easily as they come out do they?

Davetnova - sad would be those items on a supermarket single night, the lack of contacts would inform you thus.

UNLESS you took the dog - guarranteed to strike conversations with like minded intersted parties (of the first part).

one memorial candle for a romantic evening with someone you met----check Woody Allen's film---Play It Again Sam.

Honestly--- Davetnova really has a sad list---but at least he has the companionship of the dog and cat. I hope. If not the whisky surely comes in handy---and, who was it--Richard Pryor?---his friend that visits with him each day---the bottle.

One pack of dog food implies a very small dog.

But half a bottle of whisy is always sadder than a whole one.

I see I'm not the only one who wonders at the temporal relationship between the various items being purchased by the customer ahead of me. Are they for one occasion or to spread around the house?

In the morning if I stop by the store after dropping off the kids at school and get in line following a young store employee buying a bag of Krispy Creme donuts and a Diet Coke, I bite my tongue about suggesting a healthier breakfast. I'm kind of intrigued by the guys who go through line on Saturday afternoon with a couple of good steaks, wine, salad fixings, dessert, pharmaceuticals, and a bouquet. It's tempting to make a remark or just give them a wink, but again, I keep it to myself.

What would be a happy shopping list. I have a feeling that the contents of your supermarket basket don't reveal much about the sadness and gloom in your life, or the opposite.

The merry families with supermarket trollies piled high and the smart looking couples with bottles of wine and gourmet this and that sometimes remind of a line from Philip Larkin

A joyous shot at how life ought to be......

hmm, well a sad one recently was my first stop at CVS after breaking my leg and getting surgery: Vicodin, Vioxx, aspirin, Vitamin C, calcium supplements...

Only thing I am still taking are the vitamins!

I like to look at what people buy at the market, helps me figure out who they are. Or maybe not. I always wonder if the check-out folks actually notice this stuff.

Carol Burnett did a hilarious sketch about a guy at the market with a girl (Harvey Korman and Vicki Lawrence) who check out their stuff with a ditzy cashier (Burnett) and he has bought a bunch of embarrassing sleazy date items like scented candles, tinned oysters, etc.

And, when I was growing up the Basic List was:
Beer
Milk

During a major snow storm, after I realized I wasn't going to make it into work, I stopped at the 7-11 and bought a half gallon of orange juice, a box of Entenmans chocolate covered donuts, and the NY Times. This was my idea of the perfect single guy's snowed-in shopping list. The guy next to me had the same stuff, but asked the cashier for a pack of condoms. Suddenly, my list seemed pretty sad.
