Canned Food

It wasn't until somewhat recently that I discovered the difference between brand-name canned goods and generic canned goods. The majority of brand-name cans have slightly rounded bottoms that fit perfectly into the tops of other cans so the cans can stack easily. Most generic cans have rigid edges on top and bottom, and they stack precariously at best.

This morning when I reached for a can of chunk pineapple and a giant can of pumpkin toppled off another can of pumpkin and they both crashed to the floor and somehow slammed into my right ankle, I found myself thinking that it just might be worth the extra 15 cents a can to get those nice stackable cans.
