Amuse yourself in the supermarket

Right, following my day of stress and hyper-activity, I thought I would post my thoughts. I was watching a television documentary on fat kiddies and that even fatter kiddy-chef trying to stop the little buggers from eating pizza (his name is Jamie Oliver, I believe) and they went to the supermarket. Then, as you do, I sat there wondering if a supermarket is actually as boring and gloomy as it seems – and I found that there could, potentially, be an opportunity to have fun. Yes, you heard me, fun – read on and if you decide to take my advice, I applaud you!

This will sound immature and childish, but it highlights the amusement you can have in a supermarket – especially at nightime when it’s full of corpses roaming the aisles in search of fish fingers and bacon slices.

1) The first thing you could try is putting random boxes of condoms in people’s trolleys – childish, immature and stupid

2) If you have time, set the alarm clocks to go off every five minutes – again, utterly pointless but let’s turn supermarkets into fun places to search for meat and veg!

3) Move the ‘caution, wet floor’ sign to a carpeted area

This is a very brief blog, but I do like to amuse myself now and again (lol – I didn’t laugh out loud, like most people don’t, but it’s such a cool word). I wouldn’t advise any of the above, and perhaps this makes the purpose of my blog pointless. But you have to shift away from the depressing news and current affairs, and I have little ways of amusing myself.

Now it’s time for coffee, more coffee and an early night.
