Food I reckon I'll crave when I'm old as crap...
So the other day I was checking out a the grocery store and this elderly woman placed her stuff on the belt next to mine. I glanced down and took a mental note of her inventory:
Tea Biscuits (2 boxes)
1/4 pound of deli ham
Interesting. Well, to me it was...because it got me thinking about what I'd likely eat when I'm older than dirt. So, behold...for your enlightenment...Food I think I'll (eventually) like:
Deli Ham - Because I think I'll take a cue from the elderly. They all seem to love their deli ham, right?
Brach's Peppermints - My grandmother always had these and I always thought they sucked. But maybe my taste buds will mature...or maybe they'll dead so those god awful things will just keep my mouth busy.
Cottage Cheese - I think I'd eat this at lunch. With my deli ham on the side. I'd probably bitch about the curd size.
Apple Sauce - Not a huge fan of apple sauce but I'll bet it's ok as a side with my cottage cheese/ham combo.
Nutter Butter Cookies - Again, another staple at my grandma's. I liked these cookies as a kid so I'm sure as an old fart I'll continue buying them. If it ain't broke don't fucking fix it, right?
Grape Nuts - I don't know. May be hard on the teeth but I just don't envision myself saying, "Goddamnit! Out of Lucky Charms! Fuck that!"
And given I'm an aficionado of spirits, I think I'll continue with my favorite libation: Gin.
I've been told it's an old lady drink so I guess I'm ahead of my time. I do love my gin, so there's that.
