Change is good
I've been thinking some about where I am and where I want to go, and to get there some things need to change. But change is good. I have set some new goals for myself, and am full of that new enthusiasm you have when you first set out on a journey. No doubt there will be bumps along the way, but I am determined to get there.
Today I went to the store for milk (whole milk for my one cat who will drink nothing less), and while there remembered I was just about out of my favorite mustard. Only desperate scrapings are left on the sides of the glass jar. Standing in front of the mustard shelves (many many of them I might add - when was the last time you bought mustard? Is it just an American thing, that we have way too many choices?) I was scanning them for the familiar round jar. No round jar. Same store I bought it from last time - but no round jar. Look again, every shelf, side to side, up and down - no round Inglehoffer glass jar. And then I refocused, and looked at the labels, and there it was - in a new oval-ish plastic jar! Part of their description is "With Real Honey". Or at least that's what it said on the old jar. In at least 3 places. They seemed very proud of the fact that it contained real honey. Now, on the new jar, it just says "With Honey". Once. Is it not "real" anymore? One wonders. What would "not real honey" even be?
