I went to a big-box grocery chain today, and thank goodness I didn’t need to stock up on toilet paper, hand sanitizer, frozen vegetables, or fresh meat — there weren’t any of those. And no bananas! Why bananas??
However, there was plenty of cheese, cured meat, and gluten-free bread, which was what I went there for. And the store was fully stocked with French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese wine, just like it always is.
Bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, toast, and wine. What else do I need?
Oh, that’s right — Irish whiskey. I had to go to the ABC store for that. No shortages there.
I saw one face mask at the supermarket, and an employee was wiping down the handles on all the shopping carts as they came in. Other than that — and selected empty shelves and overloaded carts in the checkout lines — there was nothing unusual.
There were no screaming fights over toilet paper, but that may be because there was no toilet paper whatsoever in the store.
