Shit’s getting weird here. Korea’s been handling the pandemic well, but imports have been wibbly since this whole mess began. Food prices have been slowly rising, especially fruits. I guess a lot of fruits get imported or something.
My house hasn’t had fresh fruit other than bananas in a while now. Bananas go bad within a couple of days, though.
Today I went to the grocery store and took a peek at the fruit. They had bags of apples for the equivalent of four dollars each. Each bag had at least one apple so badly rotted that it was one bump away from bursting. Several bags were already dripping from rotten apples that had started to ooze.
People were SNAPPING up these bags of apples. There just isn’t any affordable fruit out there.
Right before I left I asked my husband if I was being too “tinfoil hat” about wanting to be ready for a complete loss of access to household items that are made out of country. I’m not asking this anymore. It’s a reasonable preparation to make.
