Haiku Poem – 食料の買い出し

food wonderland
boxes to the heavens
money grows wings

(Scott version)
しょくひん の おとぎ の くに で おかね とぶ

(Michiko version)
まとめがい よりどりみどり そうこてん

Twice a month I go shopping for food. Normally I go to the local grocery store because it’s convenient. The local stores are a little expensive compared to the mainland. The quality of their produce isn’t as good either because it takes about two week to arrive by boat.So whenever I get a chance I’ll go to Costco. However, Costco also ships their produce. But their meat, vegetables, and frozen foods are often cheaper. The quality seems better too. A normal Costco trip for me costs about $150 while the grocery store is about $50. I buy less at the grocery store because items are expensive and lower quality. However, because Costco sells in bulk, the fresh foods go to waste because I cannot eat them fast enough.
