Today in the check-out line at Kroger I caught a glimpse of white out of the corner of my eye. When I turned to look at the check-out conveyor belt thing, I saw it was full of milk. Seriously. Full. The Indian (?) couple behind me had bought I don’t know how many jugs of milk – gallons and half gallons all crowded on together. Enough to completely cover the check-out counter. I looked on in amazement.
“That’s a lot of milk!” I said to the man. I’m sure he was impressed by my keen powers of observation. I just couldn’t help myself.
“I drink it all,” he replied with a chuckle.
“Oh, you’ll be very strong!” I encouraged him. Then his wife (?) started talking to him in another language. I paid for my balloons and headed out into the rain.
