Every day before I go to work I swing by the local grocery store to pick up my days worth of food. My bill normally comes up around 12-20.00 a day depending upon if I am on my mag-10 cycle or not. I take my paper sack and ignoring the jokes of my co-workers, carry it with me all over work to the different post, grabbing stuff out of it through out the day. Now here is the wired part. I feel this way a lot, but normally more when I go shopping for food. As I stand in the check out line and work with my geriatric teller helping me learn a new meaning of express lane… I begin to look around I feel ? I feel… out of place. I don?t know if it is because I am a shift worker? and I am just not used to all the people, but today I figured out why?
I make the same run to the grocery store every day of the work week and I buy all the basic core lifting foods. Tuna, cottage cheese, whole nuts, milk… Salad and etc? As I stand in line I notice things… Weird things… For example people buying large amounts of food for the whole month solely based on the fact that they had a coupon for ?bucket o lard, potato chips? and the ?aorta exploding bacon.? They are buying cubes and cubes of soda and any thing else that was on sale or taste like a sugar high. I wonder if these same lemmings would buy this food if they had any Idea what the nutrition facts said on the back of the label. I even once had a old lady stare me down because I about chocked and coughed. When I picked up a chicken pot pie to see it had 65 grams of fat in it. Granted it was on SALE but? 65 grams of fat WTF. I guess in some ways I feel like I am the only person deciding not to run off the edge of the cliff. I just want to scream ?WTF are you doing… don?t you know what the glycemic index is for the dam pop…put it down… put it down now??These same people donate money for the national children diabetic fund raiser that there having at my grocery store but on the SAME check they are buying 6 bags of chocolate flavored, sugar coated, sugar puffs for there kids… Just because it was on SALE… I don?t get it? Now that I think about it these people would probably think I am just as nuts to roll out of bed and in a hour and half latter in a ephadra crazed determination be pulling twice my body weight off the ground in a dead lift. Does any one else feel weird when they go shopping for food. Or is this what a T-nation citizen fell like. Or am I just nutzzz…Let me know what you think.
