I needed to run to Lincoln this afternoon, while Lloyd stayed home for some important Game Playing. As I was heading back home, the lady on the radio was talking about cooking with wine and I was passing Heartland Pantry. It seemed like a good time to go buy some cheap wine, seeing that Trader Joes’ doesn’t open until December.
I went during the Texas/Nebraska game, so the place was deserted. It was fascinating wandering the aisles all by myself. It’s a store that mostly carries the store brand for Hy-Vee, the big grocery chain in Lincoln. I grabbed a couple of things that were super-cheap, like these bags of cereal that were 59 cents each! And those cans of juice concentrate for 75 cents each!
When it was time to check out I hadn’t really done the math, so I was shocked when the bill total was under five bucks. I reacted in a shocked manner but the guy at the register didn’t care – his eyes were glazed over as he listened to the game on the radio. (I could have walked out without paying, then it would have been free!)
Heartland Pantry, our paths shall cross again soon, seeing as how I forgot to buy some of your $3 wine.
