I ran into a neighbor while grocery shopping last week. She’s the mother of two teenagers. As we chatted, I glanced into her basket. It held nothing but healthy stuff: apples, broccoli, whole wheat flour, etc. Everything was good for you.
Meanwhile, my cart was overflowing with crap. I did have apples, bananas, and baby carrots buried at the bottom, and I don’t think my family eats atrociously, but really my cart was a mish-mash of tasty treats, stuff we should eat (but probably won’t), and stuff that’s on sale:
I think I literally tried draping myself across my cart, batting my eyes, and making sweeping hand gestures to distract, distract, distract!
Plus, don’t forget this is what I feed my kids when my husband’s out of town.
If she starts leaving celery sticks on my front porch for my poor, suffering children, then I’ll know she saw everything.
What’s made you feel embarrassed lately?
