Post 275: The Plot Sickens

Post 239: Product Recall

The mass production of food and other consumables has resulted in daily news about some item or other being recalled by the company. Hamburger is recalled for e coli contamination, children’s toys are recalled for lead-based paint, and the Solomon Islands are being recalled due to not enough life guards in their towns.

I am shocked that one of the most enjoyable shopping venues has yet to be recalled for the dangerous conditions we are exposed to there.

saw you at trader Joes tendonitis about 9 months ago – w4m

It was end of summer or early fall last year. I have fluffy brown hair, slender, can’t remember what I was wearing, maybe cutoffs.

You had longish hair, appeared to be late forties or early to mid fifties. We checked out at the same time after making eye contact earlier. You were cute and I wanted to meet you but my then boyfriend came in the store and I left feeling like I wished I could have met you, you looked so nice.

So glad Sparketta didn’t wait until a year had gone by to tell us about this horrible outbreak of tendonitis at Trader Joe’s. This being a military area, both navy and marines, people might have moved on by now.

Also, how do you have fluffy brown hair that is also slender? Thanks to my local CraigsList publications for this scintillating missed connections.
