Why I Don’t Grocery Shop Before Blizzards!

3 Jan


If you live anywhere near the Midwest, be prepared…a blizzard is coming our way.  This means that there will be a huge rush to the grocery store for bread, milk and Totino’s pizzas!

I’ve never been one to buy tons of groceries before a winter storm.  Actually, we never buy groceries anyway.  We like to eat out and typically do almost every night of the week.  It has always amazed me that people always spend $300 at the grocery store for food that will be bad when the storm is over.  And in reality, if you live in captivity, most of us are only 3 minutes from the local Walmart or gas station anyway, so it’s not like you’re going to starve.  McDonalds never closes.

If you live in the hills of Appalachia, that’s a completely different story altogether, but I can’t imagine many of my readers are plugging their computers into generators just to read my blog.  I don’t know.  Maybe I’m wrong.

But I digress.  Maybe this year I will stock up on a bunch of crap food and stuff it down my throat all day Sunday and Monday while catching up on Breaking Bad or Teen Wolf.  Maybe I too will buy loaves of bread and quarts of milk, although I don’t like either and have no idea how to make French toast.  That’s the sole purpose of brunch and boyfriends, although most of my boyfriends have similarly not enjoyed cooking either.

Tonight I had a wonderful experience waiting in line at Walmart while people prepared for the blizzard.  Check out the video below and then let me know what things you like to do during a blizzard.  If I wasn’t an alcoholic, I think I might get a case of beer and some spiced rum and call it a day.  Then again, that would probably explain why I’m in recovery!

For now,

    You are so lucky a blizzard is coming! We are just expecting a shit-ton of radiation from Fukushima right now. Have you heard that Frank Turner song, “Recovery”? It’s awesome. Make a snowdude for me!

    Oh God I know and hate that feeling, being stuck in a queue but just can’t leave because I’m so invested in getting it done after waiting so long. Worse if I had impulsively jumped over from another queue because I thought it would clear faster, but it stalls and the queue I abandoned earlier turned out to clear way faster!

      It always happens to me! I’m sure there’s a lesson in it somewhere!
