I saw something very funny at the grocery store the other day. I was making my way through the produce towards the apples. My cart got hung up on an electrical cord and as I was maneuvering over it, I realized the cord was actually attached to a video camera. I still didn’t think anything of it until I grabbed some Granny Smiths and a gentleman actually replaced all the apples I collected with apples from the back of the stack. I moved a few paces to see what was going on. There were three people just standing behind the camera seemingly staring at the apples. And they looked so deep in thought. I’m not sure what they were expecting the apples to do?
After getting some bananas, I sauntered back over to the apples. I admit, I was trying to get on camera. I always wanted to be on film. I tried to look like a cheerful shopper, just in case it was a commercial. This could be my 15 minutes of fame. Then it hit me, what if it’s actually a study on how people shop. What if they were watching me while I selected my apples, do I pick from the front, or the back and what does that say about me? Am I the sort who lives on the edge and chooses apples from the bottom of the stack?? Or do I play by the rules and grab from the top? Or what if they weren’t really filming anything! What if it was just a study to see how people behave when they get near a giant video camera!!! I got paranoid, grabbed my apples and left. I really wasn’t dressed right for a TV debut anyway.
The whole reason I went to the grocery store was to buy apples to make caramel apple brownies. I had a craving for caramel apples, but I’m not really a fan. Brownies are more my thing. These caramel apple brownies have a crusty, sugary top. In each bite you’ll find either soft, tart apples or gooey caramel bits ! I was so excited when I pulled these out of the oven, that cinnamon apple smell was overwhelming. Fame could wait, my stomach could not!
