I stole something...


Today I was in the Costco in P-town, Ohio shopping for refreshments of a sweet nature for an event tomorrow night. My step-dad is playing his annual advent concert at Liberty Presbyterian Church (where I was married) and we were picking up some obviously large quantities of cookies. As we got out of the car we saw a woman drive away,leaving something in her cart. She pushed the cart into the "cart parking spot" leaving a glowing bag of blood oranges behind.

Then we took them.

So was it wrong? Did I really steal? If so,who from? The woman? She left them.Yes I know, the most absolute righteous thing to do would have been to bring them into the store and give them to lost and found: produce division. But I didn't. So what right?

I am going to alert the produce theft department of Costco. You're going to go to jail for a long time where there isn't a blood orange to be found.

That was probably the Christmas present for some poor family. That woman probably saved up all year for those oranges. I hope you enjoyed them.

When destiny (in this case blood oranges) crosses your path, how can you deny it?

yes-it was destiny. I was meant to come across those beautiful oranges.

The most important question is what you did with them. If you put them in a pretty bowl on your table and now they are getting soft and moldy, then shame on you. If you put together an amazing meal of some sort, then you did the right thing...

Well RN, I put them in a bowl and only hate half of them. They weren't that sweet. But don't worry they will be added to hot wassil later today. Ever had it? It takes forever to make, but its so warm and wintery. I'll get a recipe here soon. Remind me if I don't.
