Another late one, or, the injustice of peanut butter pricing

Managed to (finally) get groceries tonight. The biggest pain in the wallet came when I picked up a 28-ounce jar of peanut butter that now cost $6.19. My memory is fuzzy but I know I did not pay over six dollars for my last jar of that size. I think it was $4-something. We had been warned that peanut butter prices would jump because of all the problems with this year’s peanut crop. This is gonna be bad for a peanut butter addict like me.

The other bit of news today was, I was able to assist a co-worker with his car, which had a dead battery. It’s good to have jumper cables. It was also a good excuse to get outside on what turned out to be another nicer-than-average day, weather-wise.

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    That is good of you to help your co-worker.
