The daily writing prompts move from expressions to places. And how fitting that ‘supermarket’ is today’s prompt when Friday is usually my supermarket day.
I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of going to the supermarket for many reasons.
One – it costs a lot. Especially with a teenage boy in the house. He keeps eating and eating and eating and there’s never enough food in the house.
Two – I have to go in with a plan which means I need to think about what I want to cook or prepare during the week. I inevitably leave something out and have to go back.
Three – The whole process of putting stuff in the trolley, taking it out and putting it on the conveyor belt so it can be scanned, putting the bags back in the trolley, putting them in the car, taking them out the car and then unpacking the bags makes me feel exhausted every time I think about it.
Four – I hate it when I go at a busy time so I try never to go on a weekend. Although if I go too early on a week morning the bakery stuff isn’t on the shelves yet so it can be a toss up!
I’ve considered online grocery shopping but it’s just not the same. I need the 3D experience so I think once virtual reality merges with online shopping that’s when I’ll stop going in person.
