Time To Go Grocery Shopping . . . April 6, 2020

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor, Joke, Less IS More.

I’m making a list
I’m checking it twice
I’m heading for food
I’m throwing the dice

The CDC would be so proud of me

I’m wiping the cart
I’m wearing a mask
I’m all geared up
To succeed at this task

The CDC would be so proud of me

It sees me when I’m talking
It knows when I’m awake
It knows if I have washed my hands
Before picking up that cake

So you better watch out
You better not cry
You better not skimp
I’m telling you why

The CDC is looking out for you!

Aah . . . that’s better!

I barely recognized you in your scuba gear

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

It’s more form fitting than what I usually wear when shopping for groceries. πŸ˜›

2. Rivergirl - April 6, 2020

Ha! Perfect.
I’m going to gear up and head out tomorrow. I’ve been housebound for 2 weeks and it’s going to feel strange!

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

Good luck! BFF just got back from Publix. The aisles are now “one way” with no backtracking.

Rivergirl - April 6, 2020

Yikes. Good idea, but I can see myself making a lot of illegal u turns.

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

Reminds me of the song “Keep Me Turning” . . .

“They say that the trick is to walk in backwards like you’re walking out.”

Nice outfit, Nancy. πŸ‘

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

Snug as a bug in a rug!

4. Jill Weatherholt - April 6, 2020

Don’t tip over, Nancy! πŸ™‚

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

Even sitting down is a challenge!

5. Tippy Gnu - April 6, 2020

I don’t mind if you wear scuba gear while shopping, but I wish you hadn’t posted this. It might give the CDC some ideas, and next thing you know, we’ll all be required to wear scuba gear while shopping.

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

What? You mean you don’t already wear scuba gear while shopping? It’s all the rage here!

Of course, we don’t live in the desert. 😯

Tippy Gnu - April 6, 2020

No, we just hope the air is so dry, it will desiccate the coronavirus and turn it to powder.

nrhatch - April 7, 2020

Our pollen count is HIGH right now, with thick coatings of yellow dust everywhere. IF CoVid-19 is allergic to pollen, we’re in business and it’s toast!

6. joyroses13 - April 6, 2020

LOL! I would say you are well protected, just warch out for sharks. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - April 6, 2020

Good thinking, JR13! And if I snag a pack of TP, I also keep an eye out for TP Thieves trying to pilfer from my buggy.

joyroses13 - April 6, 2020

You are welcome, just want to keep you safe! And yes, def be on the lookout for thieves if you get a pack of TP, thats like Gold you know!

nrhatch - April 7, 2020

I got a funny image set to me yesterday . . . a roll of GOLD toilet paper with the caption “He went to Jared’s.” πŸ˜›

7. Joanne Sisco - April 7, 2020

I’ve been seeing a lot of these kinds of photos lately and I can’t tell whether they are real or intended to be a joke.
If they are real, it makes me rather sad because it speaks to how afraid people are and they are prepared to do anything to protect themselves.

nrhatch - April 7, 2020

This is the only one I’ve seen . . . and I’m pretty sure it’s a staged photo, intended as a joke. Sorry it made you sad.

Joanne Sisco - April 7, 2020

Then I’m glad it was intended to be a joke πŸ™‚

nrhatch - April 7, 2020

Me too! Even in the midst of a pandemic, hanging on to my sense of humor is “essential business.”

Stay well!

8. Ally Bean - April 7, 2020

My goodness aren’t you taking the CDC’s suggestions seriously. Didn’t know you were into scuba diving. πŸ˜‰

nrhatch - April 7, 2020

It’s my new thang! Swimming with the fish . . .

My sister and brother and their spouses are certified divers, but once they had kids, their diving days died down. Too dangerous.

9. roughwighting - April 7, 2020

Clapping loudly and with great enthusiasm. WELL DONE! (And I’m impressed with your scuba gear – don’t forget to breathe!) πŸ™‚

nrhatch - April 9, 2020

Thanks, Pam. Stay well and keep breathing!

10. Val Boyko - April 8, 2020

Great job Nancy! Thanks for the smile πŸ˜†

nrhatch - April 9, 2020

Thanks, Val. Here’s hoping the tide turns soon.

11. L. Marie - April 9, 2020

πŸ˜€ 😁 So clever and fun!
I went to Wal-Mart the other day. It was like another world. But I found toilet paper. πŸ˜€ 😁

nrhatch - April 9, 2020

Woo Hoo!

Suited up to go
With the ebb and flow
Of Covid-19

Here’s hoping the tide turns soon!
