Star-Crossed Love in the Dairy Aisle of Trader Joe’s at Essex Crossing

Posted on: November 21st, 2018 at 5:08 am by

It has finally happened – a Craigslist Missed Connection reared itself in the heart of the new Trader Joe’s at Essex Crossing! Nothing screams romance quite like dairy aisle empathy on Grand Street.

You’re the cute guy who checked the stock room to see if there was more Half & Half. There were none, and your disappointment was heartfelt. I was wearing all black. If you want to grab a coffee sometime I’d welcome it. Tell me what color your shirt was and let’s chat.

At the risk of overstating the obvious, this lovelorn Robert Smith fan cloaked in night could just go back to Trader Joe’s another day at the same time, and actually ask “cute guy” out.

Only time will tell if this person gives up the Half & Half for the heavy cream.
