Here is a shopping list I found in the library. For some reason, it struck me as quite poignant. Could it be seen as an existential metaphor for life?
Why small tomatoes, small onions, small cheese? Is that the most we can hope to obtain in life? Do we need potato chips to make us wise? And why is "bounty" crossed out? Don't we all deserve our bounty? (Try not to think too hard about the razor. Sometimes a razor is just a razor.)
Life can be hard. Sometimes you have to press it with your finger to test it out.
...Okay. Perhaps "existential metaphor" is a bit of a stretch.
But I do so enjoy these little quiet glimpses into the lives of other people. It reminds me that we're all connected, we're all searching, we're all hungry. We all forget what fruit is out there. Maybe we just need to remind each other from time to time.
What's on your list? Go get it.
