Shopping lists have so much un-tapped potential. You’ve all found someone else’s at some stage I bet, lurking in the corner of a trolley or forgotten at the end of the packing-counter, used and unwanted and wanting re-cycling. I defy anybody to not read it in the name of good old fashioned nosiness, and I feel it my duty as a quirky citizen of the planet to at least make them slightly entertaining.

I gave this list to my husband today (his virgin shopping trip in our ten year courtship! Yay!) and as it turned out, he brought his mother.

Scarleh.

    Superquinn have been delivering for free of late, chocolate an all!
    Boil T.A.T in oil, add cabbage and simmer.

    Jaysus. I’d rather have him battered (with chips).

  3. The arguments about what kind of potatoes to buy or how much rice is needed in a recipe are my favourites.

    The other day I was in the market and some larger than life woman started cursing at her husband for getting the wrong tomatoes. A worker in the store asked her to be quiet. The large and loud domineering dominatrix proceeded to tell the worker that she’d beat her into the concrete and use her like a mop. It was hilarious!!!

    Security was called and the lady was escorted from the building. :)

    TAT took his mother? That’s cheating. It all depends on his mother though. My mother, for example, can not spend less than two hours in any store. Going shopping with her is like pulling teeth!

  4. K8! 2 blog posts in 2 days? Incredible! Is it Christmas?

    Keep it up! Great to have you back!

    Yes but did he remember the sexual chocolate? And if it’s better than sex, can you send me some?

  6. Holemaster says:

    I almost always start with one item I need, go to the shops and end up coming back with everything except the item I needed.

  7. I’m with Baino – what brand is this sexual chocolate. And do you use it before, during or after? Just wonderin’.

  8. K8 says:

    Jefferson; No it was sweet, she ended up paying for the whole lot. If I’d have known I’d have made the list bigger!

    Darragh, I know, isn’t it terrible? I used to hear my blog crying itself to sleep every night from neglect and I felt bad for it. If you think my blog’s neglected, you should see my hair!

    Baino; She bought me chocolate-covered fingers. I’m not sure what to do with the hidden message in that one.

    Holemaster; Oh gawd yeah. It’s horrible going home to find you’re all duck and no bogroll.

    English Mum; It’s a brand of rubber gloves! Do with that what you will.

  9. Jo says:

    Heh, hidden message :)

    Better a chocolate covered finger than no chocolate at all, I suppose :)

    Holemaster, I do that too! It just took me a month to buy new cotton buds, and I stil have no porridge oats after… weeks!
