I visited the supermarket today and, despite that Halloween was only 8 days ago, they’ve already replaced all of the Halloween displays with Christmas ones. Doesn’t commercialism warm your heart/make you want to take a shower?
In any case, I spent a few minutes trying to decide between mango and lemon yogurt (I eventually got one of both) and nearly soiling myself when I accidently typed in the wrong code when trying to purchase bananas. Bananas, for your reference, cost about $8 Canadian for 4.5 kilos, parmesan on the other costs $122 for exactly the same amount.
You may wonder why in the world I would need 4.5 kg (10lbs) of bananas.
The answer of course is world domination and choir practice.


P.S. I had Spanish class on November 1st, "el Dia de los Muertos" or "the Day of the Dead." It's at the same time of year as Halloween, but it's far more serious. It still involves candy though. I have several "Dulces de Los Muertos" in my backpack.
