    When I went on my last grocery run, it was a figurative search-and-destroy mission. Get in, get what's on the list (that was available), get out. I picked produce from the back of the box/display,...

    Odd, since shelter-at-home went into effect, we haven't had as big a problem with people shooting at each other as we usually have. *shrug* I suppose we're no different up here than anywhere else.

    Just regular slicing cucumbers. I must be getting really fresh ones. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I was in a store that had English cucumbers.
