At The Co-op

I went to the health food store yesterday with The Squirrelly. While trying to decide which of the many varieties of flaxseed cereal to buy, some guy approached me and said "Boy, that kid looks just like you!" You might find find that a little odd, but it happens to me all the time when I go out wearing my favorite ducky onsie.

Also, over in produce, I overheard a dialogue between two women. Well, it wasn't so much a dialogue as a monologue, with one woman droning on and on about her strictly-organics vegetarian diet while the other stood there with a glassy look of waning patience. Suddenly the second woman reached out, put a hand on the other's shoulder -- stopping the first woman's screed mid-sentence -- and said, "Listen, I need to run. But I want you to know that I found this conversation very empowering."
