bonnets + more bonnets
My mom asks during Easter dinner, "So do people still buy hats for Easter? I didn't see many today!"
*crickets chirping for real*
Sister-in-law pipes up, "Ummm..that's not really the fashion anymore" (kindly refraining from saying "...since 1982.") (hey mom! how are ya?)
Mom: "I did ask some young girls at church today if they got new Easter bonnets, and they just gave me funny looks like, 'What are bonnets?'"
Anne and her daughter Hannah asked me to go to a local mall with them - one I hadn't been to. I was excited because there's a Trader Joes there and was met with a blank stare and, "What's impressive about Trader Joes?"
Okay - so she's been to a Trader Joes but others have not and tend to inquire about Trader Joes? It is only the bestest grocery store in the whole wide world, that's what!
Unfortunately,that doesn't describe the store, so my second try tends to be... "Um..it's a small store that has organic items and other items that are quite affordable. Hmm, how 'bout I just show you?!"
Seriously. I never have a good answer. Most likely you either don't care for the store or you love the store, as in I-want-to-marry-it-love it.
Anyone have a good description for the store for those of us who are normally around big supermarkets and have to drive almost an hour to get to a Whole Foods or a Trader Joes?
