Candied Yams

Saw this lone yam sitting on a shelf in the candy aisle while we were at the grocery store this morning.

Aw man, you blew it's cover. It was going to make a break for it at Halloween and escape the Thanksgiving Day Yam Massacre. Poor little yam.

Shopping decision: yam or chocolate? yam or chocolate? yam or chocolate? duh.......

Aha!
So that's where I left it!

Happens all the time when I go grocery shopping (gee, I had that carton of eggs just a moment ago, but it isn't in my hand, or my cart....).

Same syndrome as: not being able to locate my car in big parking lots, forgetting where I left my glass of water in one room when I walk into another...

They're called 'senior moments'....(sigh)...but I call it pretty darned FRUSTRATING!

Perhaps he was having a sweet potato diva moment and was trying to disassociate itself from the lowly root vegetable class by hanging out with the well-heeled corporate candy types.

I love it, someone was obviously aiming for health (macrobiotic?) and got to the sale candy area and was just like, "forget it".
happens to me all the time!
