DurianJuly 30, 2008 at 2:55 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 16 Comments
George and I were in the produce section at the grocery store when we noticed a bin of durians. He remembered my story about sneaking random bags of kitty litter and giant pink balls into peoples’ carts at Alberton’s and said “hey, what if we put a DURIAN into someone’s cart?” So then he grabs one, and sneaks it into the cart of this totally unassuming middle-aged lady who was preoccupied with her cel phone conversation. Upon realizing she had a stray durian in her cart, she promptly removed it and asked everyone around her if it belonged to them… when she found no takers, she snuck it into an unmanned cart behind her!
So then I said “we should totally put another one in her cart!” I went and grabbed another durian from the bin, and waited until she left the cart to grab some vegetables before dropping it in. We waited at the frozen foods section for her reaction… upon seeing yet another stray durian, bearing a very confused “how the hell did this get here” look on her face, she resolutely picked it up and put it back in its bin. I wanted to go for a third… but she was now quite vigilant, so we thought it best to leave it at 2.
