More snow…

February 22, 2011

That means CRAZY shopping time at your local supermarket. You know the type of shopping I am referring to. The weather man predicts a snow storm and the next thing you know the milk and bread isles are empty. I never understood why people would rush around gathering up these items as though their families would go hungry if a few inches of snow fell on the ground. Honestly, have you ever been stuck in your home for more than a day after a snow storm? I haven’t.

During the last three snow storms I noticed something strange at my local supermarket. Not only were the bread and milk isles cleared out but I noticed a sizable dent in the Toilet Paper isle. At the checkout I noticed that a few men had their carts packed with Toilet Paper – not just any type of paper but the jumbo 24 packs!  I found this quite hilarious. It took the threat of snow to remind them that they were low on T.P. – Go Figure. I couldn’t help but ask one of the guys about the T.P. in his cart. John from Bedford Hills said that he had a house full of girls and he would get an ear full if there was no Toilet Paper. Sure blame the females!

So it seems that Moms have what goes into you covered and Dads have what comes out of you covered. A win-win situation for all!

    These behaviors lie deep in our evolutionary past, I think. All us northern mammals have a need to get ready for winter: the beaver makes his lair in the stream he has dammed, the bear puts on fat for her long sleep, and the groundhog digs underground where the snow will never reach. Our species puts in provisions. What you see in the supermarket is the working out of our ancestral heritage.
