Weekly Photo Challenge: BEYOND (2)

Supermarkets often seem to be organized on very strange principles. I know that dairy counters are always against one of the farthest walls, so that in order to pick up frequent necessities like butter and milk and eggs, shoppers are forced to traverse what seem like miles of aisles beckoning seductively, luring us to impulse purchases. Makes  a kind of merchandising sense.

But some of the juxtapositions are a bit bizarre. Here are two that struck me as particularly odd.

Beyond the Duraflame logs (winter, cold, comforting flames) are — the eggs?

Duraflames --- and eggs?

And beyond lovely long-lasting Alstroemeria is —- the pharmacy?

Alstroemeria --- in the Pharmacy!

    What a creative idea for the prompt! Love the eggs!

  2. “Honey, can you pick up some bread, a gallon of milk, eggs and a Duraflame log?”

    Some retailers simply put the stuff wherever it fits. But Random Acts’ comment made me laugh out loud! :)

    Eggs, over easy, flame needed… or, ummmmm, take time to smell the roses before you reach for the aspirin? Most things folks do puzzle me so the juxtapositions don’t surprise me. What does impress me is your recognition of such things. I just walk by without a thought as to why things are as they are until you make me stop and think.

      Well, I was actually looking for photo ops, rather than grocery items, and the incongruent neighbors made for the best shots!
      Sounds like there’s a parable lurking in there somewhere —
