Grocery Shop Until You Drop!

There are all kinds of things about, even a scream and shout. You just have to look. One place you find them is the grocery store nook. Yeah, the gawker's scary place. This won't put a smile on his face.

It's grocery shopping day,
The fridge has become bare.
That processed food is just A OK.
Forget the mixed in rat hair.

It's grocery shopping day,
Your credit score is calling.
Credits cards want out to play.
Who can deny those prices falling.

Everywhere the carts are pushing.
It's the end of being stress free.
Parents all around are shushing,
Some kid always has to pee.

Well it's grocery shopping day.
Your cart is already half full.
Why not try the sample tray,
Grab some testicles of a bull.

You might find some more deals,
Or something completely gluten free.
But even with your cart's squeaky wheels,
With wheat you still strongly agree.

Oh it's grocery shopping day,
Your limit has been met.
It's almost time to pay,
There's just that thing for the pet.

It's grocery shopping day,
The line up has you waiting.
With your fingers you play,
Well reading who plastic face is dating.

It's grocery shopping day.
Your turn has finally come.
You load the belt ready to pay,
Well talking out your bum.

It's grocery shopping day,
Your credit card has been maxed.
But you'll pay that next May,
After all you were just taxed.

The fridge has been totally filled,
The best before dates are one day away.
Your family will be thrilled.
Until next grocery shopping day.

Now doesn't that make you just want to go out and shop until you drop? Would you rather do the bunny hop? Enjoy shopping at the store forevermore. The cat will stay home and let you humans roam. That way he won't end up giving slow pokes sass. But that would be fun for my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    Leisurely pace for choicest items every floor
    Prices are reasonable
    Where most are able
    Stocking the larder at great prices is a pleasure

  2. I shop til I drop whatever shopping it is, Drop is the operative word as I can't carry shopping very well, by the time I get home I am shattered.
    Great post Pat.

  4. My mother loves to grocery shop. We spend all day Wednesday doing it. My mother complains how she is rushed. I do not rush her. Resigned is what I am. We buy groceries whether we need them or not.
    The good thing is my mother is still here to do the big grocery run.

  5. Only shop the perimeter of the store
    There you find REAL food forevermore
    The center store just takes up space
    All devitalized food, it is no ace

  6. I did my grocery shopping yesterday and ran into everyone I knew. No more Sunday shopping. I thought the God squad went to lunch after church not the grocery store? Me, the sinner, just needed food after a wild Saturday night.

  9. I love grocery shopping... I just don't love the prices (and my credit card most definitely reflects that). Want to eat healthy? That'll be $50 for ingredients. Want to eat a box of Twinkies for dinner? That'll be $1.99.

    And we wonder why we're so damn fat here.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, nuts it is in every way
      Eat healthy and spend all your pay
      Eat crappy and spend it on pills
      Either way, one has bills

      Then you have the nuts
      Who says to everyone and their mutts
      That my grocery bill isn't high
      But they are fat, crippled and have a crazy eye
      They saved money though
      With a twinkie hidden high and low

  10. If you'd plan my dinners
    You'd have a winner
    I don't mind to shop

  12. Wow, your sample trays
    are more exotic at your bay.
    We just have cheese and crackers,
    of which I'm not a partaker.
    I don't do community food
    some might think I'm rude
    but I just see everyone's germs!
    I'll pass in case I would catch their worms.

  22. haha, being 'almost done' but still having to go buy something for the pet is the story of my life. I always love buying him little treats when I go. And good for you for making an entire post about grocery shopping - it's definitely consuming enough to warrant one!

  24. I don't understand why gluten free is so expensive. I hate grocery shopping, especially if I've got the munchies; I'm an impulse buyer.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is actually an easy one
      And a clever trick they have done
      Gluten and gluten free are made by the same company in some form
      So they sell cheap gluten stuff at the norm
      And sell the other higher priced to win both ways
      Because if it was the same price, gluten free would be where most would gaze
      They could sell the crap
      They peddle on every chap

  25. That's exactly how grocery shopping is for me. Great post! Have a terrific afternoon.

  34. I hate grocery shopping so much.
    The idiots that fill the aisle, I want to punch.
    The squeaky cart I always get.
    And germs on the handles are a sure bet.

    I would much rather stay home in bed.
