today's exciting outing to hannaford included many highs and lows. for example, in the "pro" column was the fact that i only had about six items to purchase, while in the "con" column was the fact that it is the day before thanksgiving. but the highest high was running several times into my friend lisa and two of her kids -- each time, she was laughing hysterically (good-hysterically, not crazy-hysterically). the lowest low was overhearing an elderly couple dithering over salad dressing:
woman: "it might be good..."
man: "you never even had it before, don't get it."
man: "it's too expensive, carla!"
woman: "it looks kind of good..."
man: "damn it, carla, you won't even let me save a f-ing dime!"
