... continues apace. Today, I bought a tray of 6 eggplant of 3 different varieties. I bought them at Home Depot along with a few other things. I walked over to where my wife had parked the car while she shopped at a nearby store. We packed everything in the car and drove off.
Everything but the eggplant.
By now, it's lying dead on the sidewalk outside of Marshall's. The total number of eggplant that I have killed is up to 10 for the year.
