The Cost of Convenience

I just learned something new today.  Convenience.  2. BRITISH – a public restroom.

Before that, there was this …

Lulu: We should have bought flour

Me (midway through dicing the first potato):  Really? There isn’t any?

Lulu: Nope, none

Me:  Well B man, so much for giving you a break today

Me (continued): Do you want to run and get flour or keep on dicing?

B: I’ll cook.

Because you know it was killing him to have me do it.  He’ll say otherwise but hovering speaks louder than words. 🙂

So off I go to the Chevron gas station/convenience store.

Me: Do you have any flour?

Clerk: We sure do, right over here.

Me: Thanks.

Clerk: What are ya making a pie?

Me: Nope, chicken fried steak.

Clerk to other Clerk: Dee, I’ll be back in about an hour.  I am going to her house for chicken fried steak.



Well folks, I paid $2.29 for the smallest sack of flour.  The local grocery sells their brand of flour for about 1/2 that.  And when I got home, we checked the date.  Good through 11/19/17.  Oh well, no weevils in it.  It’ll do.  And that folks, is the cost of convenience.

As always, more to come.

Today Is The Day!!! Must Read

Today is a day, maybe not the day :).  Actually I guess April 16th is the day but without today there’d be no need for April 16th.  AND i CAN HEAR YOU PEOPLE.  Telling me once again to land the plane.  The screaming was accidental I tell ya.  Stupid CAPS lock.

WRiTE Club opens for entries March 12 to April 1st.  In following the 2nd RULE: You MUST talk about WRiTE CLUB, I share this link: WRiTE Club 2018 Information

And that is all.  Go back and click the link.  See all the deets.  Then get ready to rumble.

As always, more to come.
