So, I was in the grocery store a few days ago — the “conventional grocery store” as I like to call it, also known as “Giant.”  While paying for my groceries, I had the following conversation with the friendly young man behind the register:

Checkout man:  Is this broccoli?

Me:  Yes, this is broccoli.

We are in so much trouble, as a nation, if our youth cannot recognize a head of broccoli.  Sigh.
