I need to get offline because a phone call is coming in about eggs.
When I am a pied, and leaving Aldi's, I walk through a private gate and up a little muddy hilly with brambles and such. Prior to finding this short-cut, I used to have to walk all the way around Aldi's fence, down to the highway, then up various precarious rocks, and back the other way. But there is some kind of fast food place being built which has knocked down all the walls, including the secret gate. That's fine. I hope it is a Chipotle's. But, their car access roads seem like they aren't going to be able to attract a lot of cars. They go via, e.g., the Aldi's parking lot, which exits down the street. Everything else is so high up on a grade, there doesn't seem to be any direct access from this place to the highways.
Anyway, I was walking from Aldi's, through the absent gate area, and walked past a bunch of store-bought strawberries, strewn on the dirt. Next to them was a pair of giant dark sunglasses, with a tag still on them. They fit me great. But, remember those oysters with the cadmium and lead in them? From China? This is what the tag on the glasses says...
"Proposition 65 Warning: These products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm. (And so forth...)"
I can't even put on a pair of glasses w/o getting brain cancer?!
So, my friends, you see the struggle that is my life.
Nothing in life is free. Mudslides are free, though. Roving bands of cannibals. Rabies. The wrong sort of bacteria. These are all free. So I guess it's all right.
