Have you ever encountered what I tenderly call the “zombie shoppers.” They usually appear in the middle of any aisle ed- effectively cutting off to or fro transit. They stand there, glassy eyed and under some mysterious spell rendering them decisionless……unable to even to discern what they’re staring at or whether they need any specific item or not. The choices, colors, shapes and shapes overwhelm their senses and they become mindless wanderers within the marketplace. They can found everywhere, even in the produce section. They pinch tomatoes, turn the lettuce heads over, and even smell the oranges all without reason or, usually, purchase. Look for them the next time you go shopping…..in any and all departments. They’ll be comparing bacon packages, squeezing the bread loaves or absently reading the cereals’ nutrition labels. But the clincher is always that their carts are in the middle of the aisles with a line of people trying to pass from either side. I pity them, if they are this mesmerized by shopping, I never want to see them deciding on which recipe they should use for whatever (if they can actually choose) they decide on cooking.
