Last night, there were a number of absurd things brought to my attention in a short time span.
1. Grocery store loyalty cards. Absurd things, no one likes them. For years, I’ve used lots of different phone numbers, asked for a new card at every visit, and done everything I can to not give the store good data. Well it must be that enough people hated them; that Albertsons has stopped using them.
2. An ad on the radio was proclaiming how good the food was because is had “lettuce picked from the field, tomatoes taken from the vine” Of course that was true, where else would lettuce or tomato come from? This was the best the advertisers could come up with?
3. Grilled cheese sandwiches — why can’t I cook one without burning one side? It’s a well known fact, always check the down side of mom’s grilled cheese; it’s probably burned. Yet I can cook complex gourmet meals without any problems.
4. Final absurdity was the bike outside the grocery store last night. The seat was 6 feet off the ground. I don’t have a clue how one would climb on it.
