I have to confess, I am overly exuberant about shopping at Trader Joe’s. They’re just groceries, and it’s just granola. I don’t get that jazzed about Safeway or Whole Foods; it’s just Trader Joe’s. I swear it’s not the Hawaiian shirts. It’s not the stupid bell either. I just love buying stuff at Trader Joe’s. I think it’s because it seems healthier and cheaper. I get physically giddy. I actually danced a little in the check out line tonight.
There’s also something about walking home from Trader Joe’s that I like. I like walking up College past all the joggers and dog walkers with my canvas tote full of fresh and frozen grocery goodness. Just thinking about it makes me want to giggle.
I could probably psycho-analyze myself, but why over think the simple joy of the eggplant wrap and the take and bake pizza. I shall not deconstruct the Joe’s O’s, which are just like Cheerios, but organic and yet somehow less expensive.
I know. I know. What a NERD!
