I was grocery shopping tonight, and I was wondering if vampires ever go into the grocery store. I know you guys can’t eat, but do you ever go in just to browse around? Talk to the cashiers? I’m just curious. 🙂
I love grocery stores. They are infused with bright lights and beeping sounds, and the rustle of carts moving down endless aisles. I marvel at the length of the shelves and their height, and how packed they are with food. A dog today has a greater and more healthy food variety than humans had in many ages before this. It is amazing to me to look at how many kinds, flavours, and variations of just jam there are.
I admit, I like to poke and prod the food, and if allowed, smell it. Some foods smell wonderfully fresh and alive, and in other foods I can smell the preservatives and chemicals, and I wonder why humans would want to put that in their body. I suppose since I lack the ability to enjoy the taste I will never know why some foods and products are desired.
It must be terribly confusing to want to buy cereal and be presented with hundreds of options. I understand that variety is exciting, but after a while I think it would become tedious. How is one to know which is the best of the one thing craved?
Of course, some immortals entertain human guests, and so it at times becomes necessary that we purchase food. Though I’ve always found it better to hire others to provide food because I cannot know what it is that I am giving my mortal guests, and I would not like to give them something that tastes strange only because it smelled interesting to me. Or because it looked nice. Or even because I saw online that epicures approve of it. Gourmet food has always been notoriously noxious to the average person.
