I’m a creature of habit.
For the most part.
When I go to the grocery store, I buy the same things. My cart is usually brimming with fresh meat and produce.
The other day I stopped by the store for a few of their specials.
While I was there I noticed that they had incredible deals on a few of their frozen food brands.
I couldn’t help myself.
I stocked up. As I was throwing frozen food entrees into my cart faster than I would even have thought possible, I was thinking of the freedom from making dinner the brightly packaged dinners represented.
I got clumsy and dropped a Banquet fish sticks dinner on the ground. Suddenly, a man appeared out of no where and picked up the dinner that I had no intention of eating.
I was TOTALLY embarrassed. It occurred to me what I must look like to someone else. The twins were still in their pajamas, neither was wearing shoes, and their mom was buying crap.
I high tailed it to the checkout line and left the store humiliated.
Not because I take my twins shopping in their pajamas without shoes, because I do that without remorse, much to Jeff’s chagrin, but because I FELT like a terrible mother for buying frozen entrees without a fresh fruit or vegetable in sight.
Have you ever gone shopping and been embarrassed by your food purchases?
