From a Northern hemisphere correspondent, with thanks!

These lists were kindly donated by a North American follower, who asked that her identity remain anonymous. I can kinda see why!

The story – I was in Costco by myself as my husband was otherwise occupied.  I’m struggling with the big cart, big bag, phone with my shopping list, slipping down mask, etc.
I saw the first list sitting on a table and asked the guy standing next to it if it was his list.  He said no, and I said I’m going to take a photo of it.  He looked at me like I was a weird-o, so I explained about you and your blog.  He then asked if I also wanted to take a picture of his list.  I said sure, thank you, my friend would be thrilled, 2 lists back to back, etc.  Photos done, I left to stand in the long  checkout line.
And … that’s when I noticed the button on my blouse (at breast level) was wide open.  OMFG.  I was so embarrassed and have no idea how long it was like that!!!  Except for the fact I have 6o-ish year old breasts, I would think he was kind so he had more time to stare at my gaping blouse!  Thank god for Covid and the need for face masks!
I never have adventures like that when I go shopping!
The first one is a little hard to read, but I am interested to see ‘seaweed’ as an item. Does anyone use this, and what do you do with it? 
And ‘live traps  x 2’; are they a humane way to catch and release mice? Ugh, lamb patties, I am happy not to be in that household.
What else catches your eye on this list?
Here is the list of the ‘kind’ fellow. 🙂
Is coconut sugar one item or two? I’ve just done an online search, and now I know. I’ll leave you to do your own research on that.

I hope all of you are keeping well, and occupied. Some days, I feel like maybe my brain has turned to mush!

  1. Oh dear, what a funny story. I’m wondering what liquid smoke is and what do you do with it.

  2. Deep breath, it’s hamb(urger) patties, not lamb 🙂

  3. I thought the second item on the first list was “curtains” and then I realized with the seaweed and bacon bits that perhaps soup was on the menu. They’re both comprehensive lists. Wouldn’t it be fun to try to use them! I know how your incognito contributor feels – I too, every time I go shopping, can feel everyone stripping me with their eyes. Why does almost everyone spell “veggies” with two “G’s” when “vegetables” has only one?

  4. I too found another list the other day- stopping in the middle of a busy parking lot to bend over to take its picture while cars, attempting not to run me over just slowed and wondered— at least my blouse was buttoned as I don’t think my 60 some odd year old breasts are anything to see!
    I’ll send it to you Yvonne shortly!

  5. How cool that you got two lists! How kind of your NA friend to share them! (Her story made me giggle! Yes, yay, for masks! 😉 😀 )

    Some people use seaweed…nori…to make hand-rolled sushi.
    Icepacks? I wonder if the shopper has a headache from trying to find everything on the list. Ha! 😛
    They have ice cream on the list twice. YAY for ice cream! 😉 And, oh, it seems they do like chips!

    The 2nd list is much easier to decipher. 🙂
    What fun lists!!! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 😀

    • Thanks for educating me about the seaweed, I obviously lead a sheltered life. I had wondered about the icepacks, also.

      That first list is a pretty hefty one, they’d need more than a hand basket to collect all that stuff.

      See you later. xxx ❤

  6. Given that there is no dividing line like there is on other two word items I’d say coconut sugar is an entity.

  7. Is that ‘liquid smoke’?

  8. I think it’s actually Hamb. Patties not Lamb patties and they want the ‘Angus, seasoned’ ones, Angus is Beef 😉

  9. Oh no! Another unorganised list, even if I managed to decipher the writing think I would have gone home minus some of the items!

    I love the gentleman’s list, for starters I can read it!
    Thank you Yvonne, how lovely to see that you have another shopping list.

  10. I wonder if they made it home without forgetting anything.

    Looks like the first list comes from a vegetarian family. Or maybe I missed something because is really hard to read.

  12. Bit hard to read at times. What I love is wondering what would go home if he gave me the list and asked me to get it for him.
    Second list – top two items “Tylenols Arthritis” I’ve already got that.
