It’s Typhoon Season and I’ve just spent the best part of 1 hour in our local supermarket “stocking up”. Of course like others, I left buying the supplies at the last minute so all I could get my hands on were a few oranges, milk, water, mustard plant and some mushrooms – wow, wondering what I can cook up with that. Looking at other baskets in the supermarket I could see they weren’t doing much better, funny thing was one guy had a basket full of Dorito Chips – not sure how long he’ll survive on those.
The real winners are the supermarkets. It’s the time of the year when they can put out their old stock, least popular items and “gasp” even increase the price, in the full knowledge that some sucker will buy it.
