Every time I close my eyes, I see produce. Some products I recognize--like onions, tomatoes, and zucchini. But, rutabaga, bittermelon, and Chinese eggplant? I wonder who on earth would buy these strange looking vegetables, but since they are sold in the store, people must want them.

The conveyor belt moves the produce at a pretty fast pace. My fingers punch in 62, help. I am immediately sent to the fruits. Ooops. I meant to hit 61. Now what would the funny, roundish, flat, waxy thing be under? Maybe roots? Or, how about Chinese....maybe cooking? But, how am I supposed to find something if I don't even know what it is?

After looking it up under several codes, I finally just asked my trainer what it was. If you know what it is, you receive the million dollar prize! Or, just a pat on the back; recognition that you are super smart, or you cook really exotic things.

My brain has been reading numbers all day. 4011 is bananas. There's 4050, 4287, 4289, and 4052.....unfortunately, I have not yet memorized the produce that belongs to those codes!

Maybe it will all get sorted out in my dreams.
