Throw away the Chee-tos! Toss out dem double-stuffed Oreos! I'm talkin to you---you who wouldn't know a vegetable if it was growing on your face----the jig is up. The Farmer's Market is back. Here's what you do. Don't just MEANDER about, stop and smell stuff. Smell it like you were right there when it came out of the ground. Smell it like you're having a religious experience (like they do at Whole Foods).Act like you know the history of the Earth. Impress those other righteous market goers. Say something like "I had these last year from Delaware." And when you're out there on a Sunday morning, by all means---especially if you're a woman---wear something ugly. Break out your inner EarthMother. The ugly long skirt your grandmaw gave you from Woodstock, the smelly Birkenstocks, and that ratty gypsy top., And if you're a man, push that bay-bay carriage and act like you care for goodness sake. We know it wasn't your idea for Sunday morning, but gosh darn it, play the part big daddy. And when the crowd gets too much, and you've seen one more person you didn't feel like talking to about nothing---get yourself some fresh hot donuts, inhale some bliss and think about all your fresh carrots. Adulthood just paid you a house call.
