You say tomato...
Grocery store workers are the unsung heroes of the urban food gathering experience. I came to this conclusion as I stared at this rather large display of Unico-brand diced tomato cans, and realized that somewhere, possibly still in the building, was the person who painstakingly stacked these all up in near-perfect alignment and ensured that the labels were all pointing forward Just So.
It wasn't Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, but somewhere in the universe I imagined the famous pop artist high-fiving the cashier at the express aisle checkout.
And, no, he didn't ask for plastic bags, either. Even in the afterlife, Warhol brings his own recycled plastic carrying bins. Bless him.
