LOL now I understand why sometimes random people start chatting with me in the store... they're escaped parents!

I understand the doughnuts - no explanation needed!

I was especially happy to get the good deals this week at Kroger-free cans of Dole pineapple and .50Santa Cruz organic lemonade. I can relate to chatting with big people at the store-it's a nice change!

You should move to Indiana. Grocery chattiness is the norm here! I even had a tall black man preach me a sermon on my birthday for 20 minutes while my kids ran in circles around me.

hehe...that's me too...the other day I was talking to some poor woman about the flower baskets at Freddy's. After we chatted and laughed and walked away from each other, my husband asked, "Who was that?" I shrugged my shoulders...I didn't know her. He rolled his eyes and said, "YOU are one of THOSE people who talks to strangers in stores!"
