The grocery store can be the best theatre around

mousegarden2And I was the star this morning. It was at the Saline Road Meijer, which is on my way to work. I had a few things on my list that could stand to sit in a bag in the Ninja for a whole Polar Vortex relatively typical southern Great Lake State summer day (temps began at 55 and topped out at about 70) and a bunch of bottles to return.

Long story short, the flimsy paper bag I tried to re-use for my grokkeries disintegrated and everything fell on the floor and somehow (thank you Zeus), the bottle of whine did not break. Arlene helped me put everything into my Plum Market bag, after clearing me for buying a bottle of whine. Of course, she knows that I am well over the age but I told her that the bottle return slips that she helped me process (because I always screw those up) were from the last couple months load of beer bottles my DayTwa daughter brought over here for me to return. Of course, she could return them herself and reap a teensy tinesy bit of income but she is uber-busy and there isn’t a store like Meijer down in Detroit (except now there is but it’s at 8 Mile, which isn’t exactly downtown), so it can be difficult. I told Arlene that I was the Queen of Recycling and getting a bunch of stuff to return / recycle excites me (yes, really) and that I love to see my daughters and even though they are perfectly capable of doing laundry and recycling and whatever without me, I am so glad when they come “home” sometimes to do those things.

The photo? Well, that is Mouse if you couldn’t figure it out (and didn’t see it on facebook or instagram). I was just about to rack it up last night when I got a text from Mouse that she was gonna come over and check out her garden. Yes!

Good night,
Kayak Woman

P. S. Is Meijer moving in to Detroit? Yes, beware, this link plays audio. I have also heard that Meijer is going to build a store in Sault Ste. Siberia. Meijer will be greatly welcomed in the yooperland.

    I am always having groceries drop on the ground out of plastic bags. I do reuse them by the way! They are my small garbage can liners, instead of buying them. I am going to have to google Meijer. I have never, ever heard of it near me.

    Looking forward to the Meijer store in SSM. It will be located behind Sears and near the Varsity Cinemas. Yay!
