Don’t ask about human poop scoops

Oddities of the week: I saw a guy towing a Weber grill through the subway station at Columbus Circle one night. I saw a Spanish family of four (or at least a Spanish-speaking, light-skinned family of four) sharing an ear of corn at the Union Square Greenmarket — a raw ear of corn, husk husked down to the stalk. I heard a vendor at our neighborhood Greenmarket telling a shopper who was wondering about breaking a twenty that he would rather change a fifty than “wait for you guys to grope around for the correct change.” And I read in my hometown paper that using skim milk makes macaroni and cheese a more healthful dish. (Tell that to fettucine Alfredo.) Sorta like a Hail Mary pass of roasting pork rinds rather than deep-frying.
