There are three types of people that got to the market at this time of day:
1. house-wives/husbands. With or without 2.4 kids, sometimes accompanied by a nanny, usually ethnic, though not required (existence of nanny proportional to number of kids involved in AYSO)
2. very old people that are retired
3. youngish people like me that are, ummm, retired
And every group recognizes the other. Unfortunately, number 3, of which I am obviously a member, is by far the most embarrassing, recognized not only by our age and general defeated look; but, by our several minute internal debate weighing the relative cost advantages versus taste discrepancies when comparing the generic brand of taco seasoning against the 15¢ more name-brand one.
