Today's Conversation at the Grocery Store

HyVee Checkout Lady: Is this collard greens?
Me: No, it's kale.
HyVee Checkout Lady: Oh, that's supposed to be really healthy, right.
Me: Oh yeah.  Kale is rich in antioxidants and beta carotene.  It has all of these health properties.
HyVee Checkout Lady: So, how are you going to prepare it.
Me: Actually -- and this is going to sound weird -- actually, it's for my my frogs.  Well, I have these frogs.  Actually, it's not for the frogs.  I mean, the frogs are going to eat the crickets and the crickets eat the kale.  It's a process...
HyVee Checkout Lady (seeming disappointed and confused): So, you're not going to eat the kale?
Me: No, it's for the crickets.
HyVee Checkout Lady: Oh.
