Please enjoy the following exchange from today’s shopping trip to Trader Joe’s.
Checker: Kosher Dill Pickles huh? Sounds interesting.
Me: Really? They’re just regular dill pickles.
Checker: I don’t know if I’ve ever had a DILL pickle!
Me: Do you just eat sweet pickles?
Checker: I don’t know.
Me: Dill is pretty much the default pickle type. (Seeing his look of confusion at the word “default”) If you order a hamburger and it has pickles on it, those are dill pickles.
Checker: Oh, then I’ve had them.
I like to think I helped our young checker learn something today.
