Down the Other Aisle

“I’ve heard single friends say that the grocery store is a great place to meet someone new. Apparently, the meat market can be just that, and the contents of one’s cart offer a revealing peek at potential compatibility. But I believe they stock married bliss in grocery stores, too. Sara and I got to know each other while sharing a shopping cart. She likes hot dogs and applesauce — together. I married her anyway. I can’t make tuna salad without sweet-pickle relish, chopped pecans, and curry powder, so I’m not exactly one to talk.”
