Needed to stock the bar so we headed for the liquor store.
Everything we needed was on sale. Cool.
We got a cart and loaded it with:
Quart of Smirnoff Silver
Quart of Bombay Sapphire
Quart of Evan Williams
Fifth of Tequila
Fifth of Triple Sec
3 Litre jug of Paisano house wine
We've been in a margarita mood lately, enjoying drinking them in the pool in the late afternoon when the sun isn't so intense. A margarita buzz on a late summer afternoon is pleasant.
So we paid for the liquor, $115 plus change, stowed it into the car and headed on to the grocery store to pick up coffee and some sour cream I needed for dinner. I found some nice globe artichokes and some cut flowers and DH spotted the limes. Good idea. We needed limes for the margaritas. I dropped my artichokes and the bouquets of lilies into the cart and headed for the lottery station while W4D went for the coffee, sour cream and through the checkout line.
We got home and unloaded the spirits and the groceries. I looked for the limes but instead found a bag of three large lemons.
Where are the limes?
Didn't buy them.
Limes were three for $1.29. Lemons were three for a $1.00.
You wouldn't buy limes because they were 29 cents more than lemons?
You didn't bat an eye at spending $115 for booze but you are too cheap to spend 29 more cents for limes?
The price seemed excessive.
Where's the sour cream?
I forgot it.
