Okay. Here it has been over a week...Sigh...Too much farming on Facebook and farming on Farming Frenzy... (I'm almost done with the Farming Frenzy game though.) :)
Friday I went to Grand Forks with a friend and was able to stock up on some food at Sam's Club. I believe in promoting our small town groceries, but I also believe in saving money when possible. I am so very thankful for our little grocery store. If I watch the sales, I can get food just as cheaply as most other people. They will also order large quantities for me if I ask for no extra charge or hassle or guilt trip so I don't have to feel guilty about emptying their shelves on the sales--they just give me a case.
Anyway, in Thief River Falls we stopped at the bread store. A man came in; he had to duck through the doorway. I didn't think much of that because I have a few friends that have to be careful in doorways. However, when he stood to full-height he was HUGE!!! If I would have raised my arm into the air, he would have towered over it. If I go again, I'll have to bring my tape measure because he was about four inches from the ceiling. I'm really curious...
While in Grand Forks at one of the stores, I saw another man who was tall. He wasn't quite as tall as the other one, but I would have had to raise my arm quite a ways above my head to touch his chin.
It makes me wonder because the first man was just driving a van like I was. I didn't notice his legs, but I can't even move our seat far enough back in our van to drive comfortably. I wonder how cramped he was and if he had to duck to see out the front window.
Anyway, we stopped at the Panda Buffet again, and this time I ended up trying the octopus. Quite by mistake, I must admit. I don't care what kind of fancy name they give it (I can't even remember,) but I will never willingly eat it again. It was chewy (rubbery sort-of) with a nasty flavor in my opinion. I about gagged, and even though I chewed and chewed and chewed, I couldn't get it to break down so just ended up swallowing it whole. Blech... (shudder here) :) I do not think less of you if you eat it, but please don't offer it to me!!!!! :)
