How do you end up with empty fridge, empty fruit bowl, and nothing in the cupboard thats worth cooking and go food shopping only to come home with a 4-pack of Smirnoff and a french stick!
It is because you have been busy and you decided to leave the shopping till hubby gets back from a week away interstate. You decide to do it Monday morning before picking him up from the airport but it just happens to be a public holiday...everyone knows that except you!
So the only stores open at 9am on a public holiday, in my local shopping centre, is the bottle shop.
I was making my way back to the car when I spied through the glass door of the bottle shop some bags of bread rolls for sale. I thought at least I can get some bread because we are out of that too! So I went in to check them out. They cost $1.89 a bag. I didn't have any loose change, in fact my purse was empty!
The assistant was a big beefy guy who looked like he really didn't want to be at work today of all days. I guessed he wan't going to put a dollar something on my plastic card, so I wondered all purposeful like around the boxes piled high of alcohol, thinking what am I doing in here? I should put the bread down, hold my head high and find the door (alcohol gives me a headache anyway)
Just then the beefy assistant asked "Are you looking for anything?" I answered, "No thanks, I'm fine, just looking" (as you do, in a bottle-o before 9am on a Monday frigging morning!)
Anyway I started to relax and found something I thought I might enjoy drinking. I proceeded to confidently pull the pack from the fridge trying to ignore the price, swapped the bag of rolls for a french stick (same price) paid with my card and I was out of there. Pity he didn't sell salami and tasty cheese!
