Supermarket Salsa

It seems to me that there is an influx of grocery store posts on the blogs of some of my favorite Smarty Panters. So you know I have to do one too, because I am a copy cat like that. Of course, mine is dancing in the aisles, because that is just me....

Unlike the video, I must dance without a partner. Even if Bob is with me, he usually moves on and pretends not to know me.


Unlike these people, I can't seem to find other shoppers to join me.


No, I am usually alone, like the lady in this video, except there is music playing when I dance (at least in my head), and I keep dancing throughout the whole song. I have never let the fact that I lack rhythm stop me before. I don't even let swollen feet or backaches stop me from acting silly in the supermarket.



If any of you think those are bad, check out Katdish's picture of a mannequin making an a@@ of himself at the grocery store.

Sorry friends. I just couldn't resist. I tried. For a whole two minutes. I just couldn't. But at least I avoided flour and sugar.....(you need to check out My post from yesterday. to understand that reference, and yesterday's post wasn't funny. I'm just mixing things up a little...

Sorry Beth, I meant to link to your post to, and then I forgot. Beth's post about grocery shopping with kids.

Man, how does Doris dance on the wall like that? I only dance when it's Sample Saturday. I loooove grocery shopping, except the part when the want you to pay for it. If you have to go to all that work picking up the stuff, you shouldn't have to give them money, should you?

Skip the produce aisle - Steph will have a garden for us this year. Uh huh.

Helen, you and I are so doing that when I come to Chicago. (At first I thought that guy was Ralph Macchio. And then I thought, wow, from Karate Kid to Supermarket Salsa. That sucks.)

First video: Where is that supermarket? I'll not be buying any of those bananas.

Second video: It's a good thing Bono is still alive, otherwise he'd be rolling over in his grave. (But it's got a nice beat and you can dance to it.)

Third video: She kind of reminded me of a penguin. I don't know why...

Well clearly, Helen, if you want other shoppers to dance with you, you need to wear more orange scarves.

I had no idea there was a salsa version of U2. What's the band called? "Ustedes dos"?

I crack myself up. And only Annie and Beth will get my joke.

Oh, and as for Doris... Was that dancing, or walking with rhythm? I know you could take her in a dance-off, Helen.

Finally, am I gonna have to divide my harvest up equally between the Smarty Pantsers?

(Pantsers. Hee. Clearly one of us visited Katdish's supermarket.)

Anyway, did I mention that we tried to grow corn one year? A half dozen tall stalks waving in the breeze. And how many ears did we harvest? ONE. I think if y'all rely on me for your vegetable intake, you're gonna get scurvy.

It's spelled a$$ not a@@.

Candy, I tried salsa dancing in frozen foods, but everything started to melt. sssssssssssssss. Cuz I'm so hot. If you saw me, you would see that I can't even typr thaat with a straight face.
Annie, definitely. Maybe the rest of the M8 Pantsers will dance, too.
Katdish, did you ever hear "Hotel California" in Spanish. You can on my blog. Look for it on the play list. The first time I heard it, it was dinner music at a wedding, and once I recognized the song, I couldn't stop laughing. The bride will talk to me again one day. You'll see....
Steph, I understood "Ustedes dos?" and found it hysterical. Though it did remind me of the joke where the librarian destroyed her used computer by deleting files the Spanish teacher left on it.
Nick- Those dolllar signs make it look to much like the real word. Besides, you knew what I meant.

Beth said...

Man, here I am missing out while posting my own grocery related post. I'll have to link to this, too, Helen!

Penguins, scurvy, and U2, oh my!

Beth, "Penguins, Scurvy, and U2, Oh My!" should have been the title of this post. Too bad I don't know what the comments will say before I post a title.
