Possibly the Most Boring Post Ever

It's been raining for six days now. It's made for a rotter (I'm rereading The Sun Also Rises) of a week. We have been avoiding the coop, but the rain let up so we bit the bullet. This is a brief glimpse into our secret society, THE PARK SLOPE FOOD COOP. It's the largest food coop in the nation, boasting over 10,000 members. And it's a great place to meet people, if you like people who have trouble with most menial tasks (e.g. rotating produce). I'm sorry, that's kind of harsh. A large minority of us know what we are doing, like 11 percent.














You might call this an establishing shot. One might. I wouldn't. It's just Union Street below 7th Avenue. Let's go inside.














Only two of my fotos from inside came out ok. This is the first. Johnson's helping his grandmother Ellis get the Swiss cheese from the top shelf. Just kidding, I have no idea who these people are, but that's a pretty good cheese shelf, eh?














I'm mad cause they only have 24 different types of oatmeal. Don't get me started on the organic almonds.

That's it. The coop is nice, but they don't have real peanut butter (Skippy). They only have that natural stuff, gross.

i just switched to the natural, organic peanut butter stuff. it's not so bad, u just have to get over the grittiness and lack of taste. notwithstanding those aspects, it's just like JIF which kicks Skippy's ass. might want to take a TWS poll on that one.
