Here are some observations based on this week's recent shopping excursions, in person and in catalogues. Why is it that we can all buy rifles to stash under our beds but no one can buy a real dart set anymore?
Doink It? Anyone?
And have you noticed that supermarket bags have gotten shorter? I suppose it's a trick to make us into think we are getting more for our money, as in: "hey! it used to take me $40 to fill a grocery bag. Now it only takes $20. What great deals the store must be offering!"
At least it will have a positive effect on the newspaper industry. People packing the Times into bags for recycling will say to themselves, "who says newspapers are on their way out? Why just look at how much bigger all the papers are this week!"
On our way to Sophia's 7th birthday party this afternoon the traffic on Rte. 28 in Waquoit was at a standstill while three wild turkeys crossed the road. Guess no one had their rifles with them.
Or any real darts.
