Bloggy buddy Jen over at Buried With Children had an awesome post this week about Grocery Store Personality Analysis.
Basically it was a humorous look at observing people in the check-out line and what their grocery cart contents say about them.
Example: Three packs of diapers and REALLYBig.Bottle.Of.Wine? =Mom of triples just trying to get through life.
Example: Four bags of lettuce, 2 blocks of cheese, a dozen eggs, with a side order of Diet Rite=Someone who’s committed to trying the Atkins Diet.
Example: 18 tubs of cake frosting and 12 cans of pet food=Batshit Crazy Cat Lady.
That got me thinking,
What would my cart say about me?
Oh yeah, I know…
My cart would probably scream “HOARDER!!”
And it would probably be because of the a$$load of 4th of July decor I bought on clearance, (and plan to “store” until next year. Hey. A person just can’t have too much red-white-and-blue in their lives, ya know?), the 8 boxes of pasta I bought cuz they were “on sale” (although we eat pasta like, once a month. If anything the boxes will make good pretend shaky-thing instruments for the kids), a box of silly straws (’cause what the heck? They are just so..so…silly) and the 4 packs of pork chops I bought on TPR (Temporary Price Reduction, a.k.a eat-asap-or-die). I obviously ignored the fact I already have 47 packs of TPR pork chops in the freezer.
“Pork, it’s what’s for dinner” (for the next 10 years).
SO…if I had a crystal ball…I be able to see myself in the future, on my cluttered couch, eating my ten-year-supply of pork, while the TV crew from the show Hoarders or Intervention navigates my packed house…..
….and plays with my 4th of July decorations.
What would your grocery cart say about YOU???
