I hadda stop at the supermarket on the way home from work yesterday but that's one thing that I dread doin' 'n I ain't very good at. I tend to go into "overload mode"...a kinda anxiety more or less....'n I have a terrible habit of freezin' up inside the store with notta notion as to what I want or need....even tho I make a list 'n have it in hand prior to my arrival.
Anyway, there I was, solemnly strollin' thru the aisles, feelin' my anxiety level risin' above 'n beyond its normal limit 'n desperately callin' my son every 4 minutes or so to ask him what we needed (which was completely useless I might add). As usual 'n as I felt the pressure mountin', I quickly halted mid-aisle while my eyes welled up 'n my brain was kickin' around a zillion or so thoughts as to why I should just leave the cart right then 'n there 'n just walk out the friggin' door....until I regained my composure 'n headed on over to the meat department.
Not knowin' what the hell I was gonna cook that night (and yes, I actually DID cook last night altho it turned out to be a night of my makin' just some quickie cube steak sandwiches w/sauteed onions 'n cheese) I began to peruse the meat case....'n some o' what I saw made me absolutely nauseous. I just can't believe that people really eat some o' the shit that this lowlife store actually sells, such as this:
I took 3 additional pictures after these 3 but by that time my head was spinnin' 'n my hands were shakin' so they all came out too blurry to post. I mean, this shit is just plain ol' nasty. There was cow tongue (complete with taste buds 'n all); pig snout (which needed some of its nose hairs plucked I might add); a huge package o' chicken hearts (which I SWEAR were still slightly beatin'); some good ol' trusty livers (the very same ones yer Momma used to make ya eat for iron buildup when ya were just a kid); somebody's goddamn kidneys; and some other weird lookin' stuff that looked like somebody's intestines were just gutted 'n packaged up 'n plopped right up on the store shelf. I thought I was gonna barf.
Now, I realize that there's all kinda weird-ass stuff sittin' on store shelves that all different kindsa people eat, but at least they're all packaged up inside a box or a can or somethin' so that ya don't gotta actually look at the shit as yer strollin' by. But the meat department don't ever put any kinda shade on THEIR shit.....they just wind some damn plastic wrap around that crap 'n slap a label on it 'n put it out there for the whole wide world to view.
But I'd really rather not, Foodtown, so thank ya very much anyway.
So now what I'd really like to know is what kinda weird shit y'all have spotted while food shoppin' so whenever ya getta chance, lemme have it (well, not literally now......YUCK!).
