C'mon Ralphs...

I spent this weekend on the road.

First, I was at a church interviewing for a job. Then, I stopped off in Orange County to spend some time with old friends (and, actually, had two unplanned interviews).

It was great to see my friends again. There's something about spending time with people with whom you have a history that lifts the spirit.

I spent Monday night cooking dinner and watching Stardust with Schwanny and Allison. Of course, since cooking requires ingredients, a trip to the local grocer was inevitable.

When Schwanny and I arrived at Ralphs, we began gathering all of the necessary components for our gourmet meal (read as: turkey burgers, vegetarian baked beans, and natural cheetos). After we realized just how many things we needed, I decided to grab a basket to make things a bit easier.

Now, I've posted before on what a good shopping basket should be. And this particular basket did not meet my standards. (See above picture.)

Could a more impractical basket design exist in the world? No, it couldn't. I mean, c'mon, I could barely fit the lettuce in there...

dude...this is not ok.

my ancestors didn't fight in wars so i could fill my basket with a hearty amount of whatever is less than 6 inches in diameter...

I'm glad your basket sucked...you know why? Because you didn't call me when you were here...I do remember that being a topic of conversation last time we talked. Hmmmmmm.

PS...the word verification says exactly I think HA HA HA.. no joke it reads gayjteeq. so the eeq doesn't work but the other part is funny.
