    Default I love grocery shopping


    You meet some of the most interesting people in grocery stores.
    I passed a man a couple of times while perusing the aisles in
    Albertson's, I could have sworn he was carrying a didgeridoo.
    Finally in the cooking oil aisle I couldn't stand it any longer and
    asked him if that was a didgeridoo he was carrying. He was surprised
    and impressed that I knew what it was.

    He didn't hesitate to play it for me as his wife rolled her eyes and
    carried on with her shopping. Come to find out he makes them and sells
    them. He took the time to talk to me about the one's he's made and the
    one's he's working on. How cool was that.

    It is, isn't it ;D That's a cool photo, too! Definitely something to
    talk about when someone plays a didgeridoo in a grocery store. I assume
    the guy had a vehicle large enough to accommodate such an instrument as
    shown in Koko's photo. Although, why was he walking around in a grocery
    store with a didgeridoo in the first place???? Just something to wonder
    about <VBG>. Still neat.

    Probably trying to make some sales. <g>
    The economy is down you know!

    I'm thinking of dragging out what is left of my inventory and making
    Sterling Silver Rosaries for eBay again.

    I have a good rating there under "Katra".

    Some years ago I saw a comedy routine poking fun at a CD named "The Sound
    From Down Under." Here are the parts I recall, though they're probably
    distorted because of the time which has passed:

    =============================================

    The name makes it sound like a record of farts! The Sound From Down Under?
    Why does "Down Under" ALWAYS have to mean Australia? Suppose you were
    talking to one of your female friends who said, "We were kissing, and things
    were starting to heat up, until I heard The Sound From Down Under. It
    totally broke the mood." THAT AIN'T NO CD SHE'S TALKIN' ABOUT!

    Suppose you just heard somebody say, "I was in an elevator with a little old
    lady, and all of a sudden there was The Smell From Down Under." What would
    YOU think was being discussed?

    Suppose you saw a book entitled, "Mirrors on the Floor: The View From Down
    Under." Would you think it was a book about Australia?

    If somebody said, "I've got some secretions from down under," what would you
    think he was talking about? Australian honey?

    A didgeridoo being played sounds like a grossly prolonged fart from a very
    loose asshole, so maybe the record company intended the name to be a joke
    all along. (Like the word "didgeridoo" isn't a euphemism for **** anyway.
    "Oy, Sheila, I've just extruded a rank didgeridoo! Come and have a look!")

    =============================================

    koko,

    While it's a beautiful piece, I don't know that I'd carry it around
    everywhere. Maybe that's how he sells them. I've never seen one played.

    I'm the elders go to guy for top shelf (out of reach) products. Hardly very
    interesting I know.

    Best,

    Andy

    Wow. That's a really beautiful one, too. I love seeing the folks at

    Great story! What a scream, he walks around carrying that. I wonder
    what something like that would go for and where you'd keep it.

    Thanks for that.

    LOL!! On National Geographic this arvo was a show called 'Taboo'. Quite a
    bit of it dealt with Pagans, and nudity, and Catholics, and nudity.....
    seems they're all connected somehow.

    Cool, but does he go everywhere with it? It's huuuge!
    I'm sorry I didn't buy one in Australia, but there were so many
    of them around (as well as boomerangs) it became almost
    annoying to see.

    Why was this an item to bring to a grocery store? Leave it in the car.

    Maybe they were walking. What difference does it make, so long as he
    wasn't being a nuisance with it?

    A question I asked him myself. Apparently it's too valuable to be left
    in an unattended car. Even though in this neighborhood I leave
    valuables in my car they are more easily concealed than a didgeridoo.

    He didn't want to leave it in the car while they shopped so it's worth
    more than I could afford. I'm kicking myself now for not asking it's
    worth, I was too interested in his playing it and telling me about the
    different woods and cactus ribs he's made some from.
