 "Sixty cents. Gee whiz!" a middle-aged man commented cheerfully to me, examining the ample bags of carrots and other ripe produce that an employee had just set out on the deals shelf of the Berkeley Bowl. I want to know if he uses such a quaint expression on a daily basis. The seafood person got chatty too, advising me to come back on the weekends for their small batch of Tomales Bay manila clams, and insisting that weekends are no longer as hectic as they once were since the opening of BB West. Chatting in supermarkets is fun, at least around here.

I think, however, that this may be the last grocery trip until post-exam...

Awww, I remember my grandparents taking me to the Berkeley Bowl when I was about 10. It seemed pretty crowded even on a weekday morning.

Good luck with the exam, and happy eating!
