Since the winds of Sandy are blowing against my windows (the stop sign at the corner got ripped off its pole an hour ago), I’ve been riding out the storm catching up on podcasts. I came across this Buzzfeed list and it sums up people shopping like it’s the end of the world. My father did his shopping the other day right when the A&P opened. He described as just older men with lists and not a word was uttered between them.
