  •  Never stand in a grocery line judging... (7+ / 0-)

    someone's food choices. You simply don't know their story. That big bottle of soda and bag of greasy chips might be a one off luxury for a child's birthday party, the ice cream a treat for a special family TV movie night. You don't know what someone may deny themselves in order to bring a few simple pleasures home. Have some imagination, and compassion.
    OTOH, I don't know why anyone would buy frozen toast.

    You can put your shoes in the oven, but it won't make them biscuits.

      sugar feed for my bees, when I don't have time to cook it myself.

      •  I love bees (4+ / 0-)

        seriously.  They do so much good in the world, they are beautiful and honey is the shit.  The only naturally kosher food that is produced by another species.

        When I lived in Portland I had a colony of bumblebees that took up residence in an opening of my rather decrepit but cool old building right by my door.  Since they only locate a colony in one place for a year - I deliberately did not tell the landlord - who would have poisoned them - and we spent a wonderful summer together.

        And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
