Finally managed some time...

I’m going shopping. List.
  1. A pair of darkblue jeans + a pair of darkkhaki jeans (waist is now 2 inches less than the last time; target : a further reduction of 2 inches in the next two months) ,
  2. Two T-shirts: 1. full-sleeve, lightslategray 2. half-sleeve, multicolored (black/blue/darkred), unattractive slogan on the front, to my great relief,

  3. A pillow + pillow cover (size: 65cm x 65 cm) ,

  4. A blanket plus cover (size: 140 cm x 200 cm)

  5. A pair of exercise gloves (not found)

  6. A pack of 10 razors from Gillette.
  7. A few assorted stuff for daily use (go to comments space).
Note 1. Blue/red colored part was added later.
Note 2. Colors were determined according to the convention here.

Men's shopping lists are so unimaginative...

@female shopper: Add to the previous, the following list of articles; just a glimpse of my profoundly imaginative mind – of course the tip of the iceberg,
1. A 10-kg packet of potatoes,
2. A soap case,
3. A pair of forks and spoons,
4. Washing powder,
5. Toiletries,
6. A shampoo.
Hope these are sufficient to make one’s imagination erupt. If not …. then…*sigh*.. you women are … you know …. incorrigible … God’s most amazing gift …

I like number 6. "A shampoo". I particularly like the emphasis on the singular "A". LOL. And even better: "A pair of forks and spoons". You mean one pair or two? And why not KNIVES and forks? I never understood this weird and utterly useless desi pairing of forks with spoons. Anyway, I may be wrong, but all this sooo spells B-A-C-H-E-L-O-R. So what are you gonna with all this...or is this just your daily shopping list?

@condom man: I was mildly amused when I first saw your comment; then amusement gave way to some mixed feelings which urged me delete your droppings of wisdom. Then again I ruminated that you may have a point that needs to be addressed. Dear, when I buy 10 kgs of potatoes I get condoms for free. Believe me they are brand new, unused, flavored and, exactly what you suggested, pink too. Unlike those which were used by your forefathers – with breaks and holes—and that explains how you are here to comment.
@female shopper: How can an imaginative shopper be wrong? “Imagination is more important that knowledge”—no, this quote is not due to the mythical Yudhishthira, but to a mortal, named Albert Einstein. But again, all these “singular”, “bachelor” stuff lead to the fact that we must have met before, perhaps at the entrance of some shopping place. At the entrance only as our ways diverged inside the shop, as you voted for “imaginative” things like poetry and I for “potatoes”.

So what are you gonna with all this...or is this just your daily shopping list?

Yes. I don’t play cricket with potatoes, rather, I need them to eat for survival. By the principle, I need to buy A SHAMPOO when the earlier one gets used up to the last drop and my hair is craggy.

Oh. I bought a pair of forks and three spoons, to be specific. I don't need knives at the moment as the ones I presently possess are sharp and strong enough to kill my enemies, even if they are heavy-weight boxing champs, with a single blow.

"...and strong enough to kill my enemies, even if they are heavy-weight boxing champs, with a single blow."

So that's what "trolls" do! Collect cutlery ;)

Speaking of heavy-weights and enemies...condolences -or should that be congrats?- on being the first (though I doubt the first EVER) to be banned from you-know-where (I'm sure you can guess the second evictee!). Any comments?

ps. I've never bought a single volume of poetry in my life, so you're wrong there, though I've occasionally had it (drunkenly)quoted at me by certain members of the male species. More of a prose gal, personally.

@female shopper: Now I can guess who you are. No comments in that regard.
