    Yup, you can tell when someone has no friends at all if you see them in the grocery store in August buying Zucchini. Yoiur mission was virtually “Mission Impossible.” Trying to find a home for August squashes is harder than finding a home for kittens.

    This is when you want to lock your car doors to avoid having extra zukes left on the seat by total strangers.
