Food For Less at 11:35 P.M.

This may seem kind of weird having a second consecutive post about shopping. And it's a bit weird because it is not one of my favorite activities. Maybe I just have a little "blogger's-block."

Last night I had to make a stop at the grocery store to pick up some frozen corn for a FHE-related elbow injury. There were probably about 3 other shoppers in the whole store when I entered. A positive feeling enegized me at such a late hour. I felt like I practically had the store to myself. Like I almost owned it. No carts to go around or collisions to avoid from turning around blind corners. It was almost powerful enough to sing along to U2's "In the Name of Love," but I settled for lip syncing. And there was hardly anyone to stare at me.

Maybe I should always do my shopping at 11:30 at night all the time.

That's why I love Walmart being 24 hours. Sorry to hear about your ouchy elbow. Hopefully the frozen corn did it's job.

I can't even tell you how many times I've been to Food4Less at midnight. That seemed to be the only time I ever shopped in college.

Now anytime I'm at a 24 hour place passed my bedtime I'm always shocked at how many people are there. With their children. I was in a Walmart once at 1am and there were families buying TVs.

I hope the corn magically healed your elbow.
