Man, a great evening this was to go grocery shopping! Why? The Stop & Shop was nearly empty. Of course there were only three registers open, so I'm guessing a few employees took the night off too. Still, it wasn't too long a checkout.
The occasion, of course--as this is Rhode Island--was the Super Bowl. I saw a few men walking around in Patriots jerseys. It's a little hard for me to take a man in a football jersey seriously. It just looks like something a girl would be wearing at bedtime. Mayb there would be a different effect if you tucked it in. Or were actually playing football. But that's just one of my weird reactions. And at least one of these guys wasn't taking himself seriously either.
