Darling loves hick towns. Darling loves Dodson’s IGA even more!
A couple months ago Darling and I decided we wanted to make some cheese. Trouble was, we didn’t have any cheese cloth. I had to decide…did I want to run into the city? Or drive out to Dodson’s and risk them not carrying cheese cloth. Darling looked at me like I was insane. Of course Dodson’s would have cheese cloth, she insisted. So out we drove. We looked all over the bloomin’ store for the cheese cloth. I couldn’t figure out where they’d put it; the store isn’t organized like your usual grocery. Then again, your usual grocery doesn’t carry shovels. We finally asked, and found the cheese cloth in the tool isle. If you ever stop there and need cheese cloth, you’ll find it next to the paint brushes, just beneath the screw drivers. Should you be an electrician, Dodson’s will carry tape for you. I think it’s next to the produce. Duct tape? Across from the jam. Or somewhere in that area.
The other day Darling and I stopped to grab a bag of chips on our way through Hick Town. “I wonder where they keep the chips?” asked Darling. “Probably across from the pitch forks, ” I said with a chuckle. Darling nodded, “Makes sense.” I’m not sure how it made sense. I had no clue where the pitchforks were, but Darling headed down the isle, found the pitchforks and did an about face. Potato Chips! Darling smiled, and said, “Mom, can we get a pitchfork while we’re here?”
And to be honest, I never thought I’d be buying a pitchfork at the grocery store…but hey, it’s a Hick Town!
