Breaking news this morning that Jeff Bezos’s Amazon has bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.
I’m not a Whole Foods shopper because…..
(a) I don’t own a black Range Rover
(b) I don’t give a hoot about organic foods
(c) I don’t like to pay a 300% premium on regular grocery items
(d) I like my grocery shopping without Virtue Signaling
I know there are Whole Foods devotees here and hey, if it works for you, I say go, shop there.
I do wonder what Bezos has in mind by acquiring Whole Foods though. Layoffs? Restructure? Raise the minimum wage of all employees?
Whatever his motives, if the owner of the Washington Post and Amazon feels this is a good deal, who am I to tell him no? I still won’t be shopping there.
Very chilly and unsunny Friday but nice enough to be outside with my coffee this morning. The shingles drug seems to be doing its thing, although I was never in any real pain to begin so there’s that. My bum is sore, like I had a shot, so I’m doing my best to stay standing all day, walking too to stretch out the sore leg and bum muscle. Maybe getting shingles will be the catalyst to losing weight!
Nothing else to report. No earth shattering news to share. So Happy Friday from me to you.
