I stopped at the grocery on Thursday night – I was in the mood for something fresh for dinner. Standing in line with my little basket of veggies and meat, I observed the customers around me. The four other people in my line were young men between the ages of 20 and 35 (I’m guessing).
Bachelor #1 was buying: Two large boxes of Wheaties. A jug of milk. A half-gallon of ice cream.
Bachelor #2 was buying: Two foot-long premade sandwiches. Two 2-liter bottles of diet Coke. A bag of corn chips.
Bachelor #3 was buying: Large box “success” brand rice. Large-size can of something (couldn’t quite see what). Large bottle generic cola.
Bachelor #4 was buying: Bottle wine. Two packs beer. Box Hamburgur helper (no actual meat – assume he has some at home?)
Made me wonder what bachelors ate 100 years ago, before there was so much pre-packaged sustenance food available…
