I could've titled todays post Another Observation, but what occurred this morning was much too odd for that.
Every weekday I drive Ibis to work and if I have any errands I try to do them while I'm out. Our fridge has been EMP-TY all weekend so I hit the grocery store after dropping him off. That's where the weirdness began.
The Commercial has a bazillion shopping carts, but this morning there were only three in the big corral. I looked around to see if the store was busier than normal and noticed a man pushing a cart FULL of white onions. Weird, but whatever. People cook with onions here.
Then another person went by and same thing, ginormous bag of onions. In the twenty minutes I was inside the store, I believe I saw at least two dozen people with nothing but onions in their cart.
Is there an onion festival coming up? A drop in onion prices? A scheduled salmonella outbreak next week so they all need to stock up now? I looked down and noticed an errant onion skin had wrapped itself around my can of peaches.
WHAT is going on?
