So, Safeway's home delivery is pretty awesome. Five bucks every once in a while and I don't have to go to the grocery store anymore. Just copy/paste my shopping list into the site, and it finds everything I need. When it arrives, it's always the same guy bringing my groceries. It's kind of weird, because he makes comments on what I buy. "You gonna hibernate for the winter or something?" "Wow, you must really like clam chowder." "I think X waffles are better." "What are you going to use all of these green beans for?" ...and so forth. It's a little unsettling. I'm pretty sure that when I worked at Russ's Market, one of the first things they told checkers was not to comment on what people are buying, even if it's a ninety-year-old man who can barely walk buying nothing but a pile of condoms and K-Y. (That happened more than once, and they always wink at you when they put them down on the counter.)
Yesterday I had a big order delivered, and he made slightly disconcerting, random comments as always. THEN, last night, I had a really strange and short dream. I was buying something online—something that was apparently terribly embarrassing (no, I don't know what it was)—but I couldn't bring myself to do it, just in case the Safeway guy were the one to deliver the order, because I'd never hear the end of it. So, I ended up not buying whatever it was.
So, as I'm Segwaying off to work this morning, I hear a honk from beside me, and it's the Safeway guy waving at me.
