A Tale from the Shopper Grim(m)!
Once upon a time, a very stressed nurse/farmwife/mom was grocery shopping. She had a list. She had a plan. She had, ahem, run out of patience. There were dragons all through Ye Land of Groceries. Some dragons charged our heroine as she rounded corners. Some dragons grouched at our heroine and shouted into their Phones of Cell. Some dragons were tiny. They flew through the aisles screeching and knocking things over. These were the scariest dragons of all. The nurse/farmwife/mom was considering finding a sword and shield. Just as she was ready to vanquish all dragons to the Land of Time Out, she espied the treasure the dragons were guarding.
The treasure was beautiful. It was pork! Italian sausage to be precise. The sausage was covered in Ye Golden Sale Stickers. The nurse/farmwife/mom grabbed two chests of treasure (pounds) and a wedge of the fairest moldy milk in the land (blue cheese). Then, pausing only long enough to pay tribute to the gatekeeper, she ran from Grocery Land.
The porcine treasure, the fair moldy milk, and the addition of soul-soothing carbs made the nurse/farmwife/mom so happy, she felt like a princess. Well, like a queen, anyway. Peace (and groceries) returned to Farmland. The dragons were vanquished.
Well, at least until their appearance at The Great Battle for Leftovers. (Although to be honest, I think the queen can take ’em!)
