The other day, I had gone Grocery Shopping in the meat produce section of the store and all of a sudden I was just talking to myself on cooking and finding new ways to cook chicken with different spices and herbs and sauces, and all of a sudden there were about 3 or 4 people who are women around me wondering what I was saying and they heard me talk to myself, then they started asking me questions, what do you do to cook chicken? What spices do you use? I said I use different spices and mix them together, then make my own sauce with the ingredients I buy. I said I usually cook chicken with a sweet and sour twist to it, and I make sure that I bathe my chicken in a lot of sauce, marinate it and all that. They said oh wow, that is great. They told me you must be an expert cook and you must do all the cooking in the house. I said, yes I do. I love to cook for my family and I enjoy creating new types of recipes and experimenting with flavours, spices, sauces, herbs, and more. We became instant friends and we took each others contact information and now we are in touch and share with each other our recipes, and soon we will be getting together for coffee to discuss our food preparations and more.
It is so amazing how people cross your path and especially from a grocery store, so Thank goodness I was talking to myself. I thought it was strange talking to myself while grocery shopping, but it was really cool to get my thoughts rolling and enjoying my time shopping. I love grocery shopping and I always look at prices and sales from the flyer. They are very nice ladies and 2 of them were together shopping, the other one was just alone shopping, and we ended up having a 15-20 minute conversation by the meats about food, and everything. They love watching the food channel and they are avid cookers and love baking too. I am so happy to have found them as we share the same interests. You meet people where you least expect it, and its an ideal place to meet in a grocery store. A lot of people have asked me questions at the grocery store, but this one struck out the most. I wasn’t going to go shopping that day, but then I ended up doing so anyway, so I was glad I did.
So excited to get together with them. probably this coming week. lets see. Has it ever happened to you where you meet people in a grocery store or where you least expect it? Did you make friends with them? Do you enjoy meeting new people all the time? I was really happy with meeting them.
Hello, I know I am super late by a week and a half with this story because I had done my recipes week the same time as when this story came about, but I am sure a lot of us have heard about the IKEA Monkey that was roaming in the Toronto Store, and how it managed to get himself out of his owners cage, car and get out to wander around the parking lot and almost managed to get inside the building when passerby’s saw the monkey with his cute little shearling coat. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I still cannot stop looking at his photos, and now its become a big internet sensation with people making memes, comics, and all sorts of things. A lot of talk show hosts are also talking about the IKEA Monkey, it made the international headline news, and it was basically what people were talking about for a week. Now probably it is still trending on twitter. Not even an hour into finding out about the monkey it was all over the internet. Now we learned of his name and he is called Darwin.
Darwin was taken away from his owner and that really is something not good. Now the owner is fighting to get her Monkey back and he is now in a sanctuary at a Story Book Farm. The police and animal services took him away. I just feel that he should go back to his owner who took care of him well until that day in IKEA where she went inside to shop and all of a sudden everyone sees this Monkey. I got to say it is adorable, and that coat is so lovely and stylish. Now I am sure a lot of people want a coat just like the monkey and I heard already that it will be 2013’s popular Costume for Halloween. I definitely want the same coat. Too cute! The way he was cozy and wearing a diaper. Just the cutest little thing. I saw a lot of twitter status messages how people want Darwin for Christmas, how they want to give up what they want just so they can have Darwin. This made a big impact on the advertising of IKEA too. Especially that special one in Toronto, where people will always remember the IKEA Monkey being in that store. I was so intrigued by the story, that I went to IKEA The very next day to look around and shop too. I said I hope we can find the IKEA Monkey, but too late. It was already sent to the sanctuary which I find to be very wrong. He should be with the person who raised him and who took care of him. There is this video and pictures of the IKEA monkey that is brushing his teeth with the owner. so cute!
I really hope the owner gets her Monkey back. She deserves to have him back. A lot of people want him back with his owner. Lets hope it happens.
