Trader Joe's...I question your taste.
First let me say, I love Halloween and all the tacky decorations that go along with it - fake spider webs, witches hats on Georgetown street lamps, pumpkin carvings, hell - even morbidly obese scene sweater-clad soccer moms ... Love.It.
But Trader Joe's Gtown has crossed the line.
Yesterday, I'm walking up from the garage and what is adorning the steps up to my favorite organic grocery store?
RATS AND MICE.
Little shadow decals of rodents running up and down the steps of a place where people buy food.
Now, I understand they matched the bats hanging from the
ceiling ... but I have never had bats in my house.
The thought of them near my organic maple and pecan granola is not as appalling as their four-legged earth bound brethren.
Rats and mice are not Halloween decorations. They are gross. Poor choice Trader Joe's. Stick to pumpkins.
