Here come the judge

Once a guy walked up to me at Publix:

Guy:  You workout at the same gym I do
Guy: I just wanted to see if you bought healthy food
(he peeks into my cart)
Guy: Wow, you do. Wayyyy healthier than me.
He lifted up his basket so I could see the soda and frozen pizza’s he was carrying.

Fast Forward
Ever since that day I am very aware of what I put in my  grocery cart.  I play this secret game where I pretend that everyone in the store is watching what foods I’m buying. And judging me.

And every time I make it to the checkout with only healthy (or realatively healthy) items- I consider it a victory.

Consequently, this little situation got me to start looking into other people’s baskets. And yes, judging. Yesterday I saw a mother and her 10 year old boy load up their cart with 1 case of Sunkist in a can along with (2) 2 liters of Sunkist!

Here are my issues:
#1 – who the heck buys Sunkist? I mean, occasionally I may think a Sunkist would be a tastey treat- but that is like a once in blue moon type of thing. I guess I just always assumed everyone else in the free world felt the same way too.

#2- If you ARE one of those Sunkist drinking people/family HOW MUCH DO YOU POSSIBLY NEED!? 24 cans AND 2 liters?! 

#3- I’m not a mom, but even I know that buying that much soda for your kid ranks up there with buying him cigarettes and booze.

Who am I to judge? It wasn't too long ago that my morning breakfast consisted of Mt. Dew and Doritos. (mmmm ... doritos)
