A list



Sometimes you find the most interesting things digging through your pockets. Take this innocuous looking list from Saturday morning. Nothing like a little grocery shopping and then running by to grab some lingerie as well! You guys ever come up with any strange lists? You know, something like motor oil, condoms, and a toothbrush? Feel free to post up some of your oddball lists.

As I made my 2nd run to the store last night for the final ingredient of our dinner (you think my wife would have verified she had everything before sending me the first time) I was contemplating something that was now missing from the store. It makes me feel old to start saying things like, "I remember when we used to have this or that." Shit, I guess I am getting old. So, crank up your reading glass prescription and keep reading. I remembered we used to have drive through service for our bags. The cashier would write the number of your cart on the back of the receipt and you'd head off to drive through the pick up line where some other minimum wage kid would begrudgingly load the bags into your car as you prayed they didn't decide to set gallons of milk on top of the bread or eggs. Now, unless your looking particularly decrepit, they anticipate you to haul that shit out yourself. I think they'd probably look at me like I had a 3rd eye if I requested it be hauled out to my truck now. Hell, just running through a self checkout is something that would have been completely foreign just a few years ago. I wonder whats next?

Haha. Funny thing is, I spent enough on the other items, I could have gotten by with the $10/lb coffee from Mars Cafe.

Does $48 dollar coffee taste $40better than regular bean? For that kinda dough it better do more than just wake me up a bit. Ya know what I mean?

I thought about asking the gal if it came with a reach around, but then I thought better of possibly having her lined up behind me in a vulnerable position...

Limited crop, limited area in which it grows, manual labor to harvest. You can get it for $10 a pound if you're willing to fly to Jamaica and drive up to the mountain to pick it up. :)
