Curiousity and Learning

I’m a lifetime learner, but apparently I need some remedial education on curiousity.

Credit: H. A. Rey. George is always curious and this insatiable drive to know more takes him upon many exciting adventures where he is eventually rescued by the man in the yellow hat.

For instance, I never should have tried the sausage burrito sold out of a shack next to my office building.

They have homemade salsa, which creates a perfect storm of proxemity, price, and pretty dang good.

A slice of Berry Chantilly cake at Whole Foods costs about the same and may have a similar calorie count (in my dreams), but is inconveniently located in a micro-store with one of the worst parking lots in town (and that’s including 2 Trader Joe’s).

WF is never not crowded. Even at the crack of opening, employees with pallets piled 5 feet high line the narrow aisles, kickstarting a mild case of claustrophobia I never knew I had.

Once again, I’m beseiged with the First World problems of having access to too much food and enough money to buy it.

Just a reminder: curiousity may kill the cat, but cats have 9 lives.


Post summary: Don’t look, Ethel!
