Found Grocery List #1

Maybe you've heard of found art?
Well, we seem predisposed to finding abandoned grocery lists.
After finding our third grocery list in a matter of weeks, I told Peef that we were going to start blogging about them.

I'm convinced that a grocery list says a great deal about a person. There are all sorts of variables -- the paper it's written on, the language that's used, the abbreviations used, the language chosen to express real, basic needs. Grocery lists are thought-provoking and HIGHLY personal items.

And so, I present the first in an ongoing series...
Found Grocery List #1
Found at: Outpost Natural Foods, abandoned in the meat case (amid the chicken breasts)



Some questions this particular piece raises:
  1. What is Hot Cho? Does it go with waffles?
  2. Who is Teah?
  3. Why does mom need special bacon?
What do you think?

There is actually a book out of found grocery lists - I leafed through it at our local snooty bookstore.

Interesting, Tony - So, is the book just a collection of photos? Or is there commentary?
