I visited two neighborhood grocers this morning
to get pictures of their offerings of ramen noodles.
I've known of them since the early 80's, when they seemed
to become a staple in the larder of college students.
The top photo is from a store which has a wider range
of food of all kinds, good and bad. Frankly,
its clientele is probably more international
and poorer than at the other store.
On a different, but related matter, I recently bumped into
a man with a selection of items from the sushi kiosk.
I'd thought I was the only one buying the stuff, but he
pronounced the kiosk's offerings as "the best."
I did ask the sushi makers about the squid and both men,
who could speak very little "hoosier,"
told me they do not eat the squid.
Consequently, I will leave the little brown
squiggleys alone, too.
