A savvy shopper? Yes, indeed;
To check before I buy, my creed.
In grocery aisle, such time I’ll take
Never miss a local story.
To check the expiration date
Of everything I choose to buy!
And yet, no matter how I try,
I’m really not a shopping whiz:
I never know what day it is
Today, which means I cannot tell
If item is too old to sell.
My sense of time is far from great;
But still, I’ll check the product date.
