You gotta step your chance encounter game up. Mine go back to at least 1999 with RR.

The story is that a Board luminary like Nas does his own weekday shopping. I didn't know whether to be impressed by his common man humility or stunned to be in his presence looking for premium charcuterie of sorts.

I mean you'd never catch an oenophile and bon vivant like JORR in the neighborhood Jewels.

Kroger took over our grocery store last year.

And I'm glad. Roundys was expensive and not anything special. Kroger Brand foods are usually good and priced decent.

The deli is more of a counter than an aisle.

What was Regular getting? I say it was a pound of turkey for every day use but a quarter pound of bologna as a guilty pleasure.

Now, for some reason, I'm imagining Dave Kingman going to Sherman Hemsley's funeral!

Shit, I could have said God damned Dorothy Fucking Tillman and her big ass hats....

(Our family operated the diner across from the Daley Center where the Goodman is now. Dorothy could not go three minutes without cussing.)

Wasn't she rumored to have actually pulled a gun out of her hat on multiple occasions (including on the floor of the city council)

Now that is a Chicagoan. She did indeed pull a gun on the floor.
