I would never buy a tomato for $2.30! I don't even like tomato, except that I was going to make BLT's this weekend and needed one for that (and yes, I was going to make myself eat some but only to set a decent example for the toddler). My plan was to buy 2 "on the vine" for $1/pound and use one for a salad and one for the sandwiches. The husband was shopping with me, and when I asked him to "grab me a bag please" he heard "there are holes in these". His response was something like "they have hothouse tomatoes right there". I was kind of confused and so I asked "you want that kind instead?" and he said "sure". They were obviously more expensive, but since I thought he really wanted that kind, I figured we'd just grab one that looked good and didn't look at the price. As we were walking to the car I made a joke about his expensive tomato, to which he replied "yeah, but it doesn't have holes!" and that's when we figured out where the conversation went wrong. Moral of the long story about a tomato: it's either grab my own produce bag or stick with what's on my list. I'm not sure, but either way he better eat that tomato!
