All the spiffy grocery stores around here are at least a 20 minute drive away. That's why I get groceries at Target. The spiffy grocery stores in Jersey are: Whole Foods (1 hour away), Wegmans (40 minutes away), Kings (half an hour away), alas, Trader Joe's (40 minutes away) succumbed to the blizzard of 2016 and had to be torn down. The nicer regular stores are convenient but crowded. I either have to go at zero dark thirty on a Saturday morning or take my chances with ordering online.

Be sure - I just don't understand Trader Joes. I keep buying things there and I don't like them.

Hattie

I love everything you do.

Thequeen

Hattie - you give me hope I can keep doing things forever.

Is calling someone a "hoosier" as an insult really a thing?

theQueen

Dawn - it's a St.-Louis-specific thing. I remember going to school at Indiana University and thought it was hilarious, all the references to Hoosiers. I'd never heard it in reference to Indianans before. I suppose long ago something turned St.Louis against Indiana.

Dawn

I went to IU, too. Class of 87. And fooey on St Louisians who think "hoosier" is a bad word!

Thequeen

Dawn - i went in 81, so had I graduated I would have been class of 84, I guess. And ya'll stole our jobs at the plant that gives out free beer. Here's the dirt:

That was really interesting. I had no idea. For the record- we don't have any derogatory words for Missourians, to my knowledge.

theQueen

Dawn - becuase you are gracious out there in Indiana. I tried to write "gracious Hoosiers" but I can't.
