Whole Foods, RWC: No Halloween Pumpkins

Self waited until the rain and wind abated somewhat, around 4 p.m., and then she ventured to the library (which had  —  OMG  —  10 copies of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, not even Gone with the Wind has that many copies, though perhaps that is not an apt comparison:  perhaps self should have checked The Da Vinci Code)

After that, self ventured to Whole Foods, feeling a strange urge to buy pumpkins.  And there were no pumpkins that self could see (except a few strewn here and there for decoration).  But, perhaps it was stupid of self to search in Whole Foods for pumpkins; perhaps she should have stuck with good ol’ Safeway, across the street.  But aside from the pumpkins, self wanted to buy some really impressive breakfast pastries and croissants (with which to impress Dear Bro, of course), and for that she was willing to splurge a little.  Hence, the decision to shop at Whole Foods rather than Safeway.

But, really:  no pumpkins?  Only a few cupcakes with orange icing?  A display of Boo chips?  Some small plastic tubs of orange and black “all natural” candy?  A few pumpkin pies?  That’s it?  What kind of store is this?

Self ended up buying a quart of Odwallah lemonade ($4.99) and some herbal cough drops to mail to son (who’s had a wicked cold, the past week), and a couple of croissants.  Bill came out to $25.02.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
