We didn’t go to the Big Town of 60,000 people today. Instead we went to a town that’s about five times bigger than Dinkytown, with almost 10,000 people in it. It’s 30 miles closer and there’s a lot less elevation change to get there, and it has big stores where they have lots of stuff so were likely to have the stuff we needed.
While there, one of our stops was Pier1 Imports. Which had some stuff we needed. Also some Chinese soup spoons for just 75 cents a pop. As we were checking out, or trying to check out anyway, one of the sales chickies, all of about 25 years old, put the sell on Amethyst. She was pushing some UNICEF Christmas cards. After agreeing that the cards were cute, when the sell continued, Amethyst casually said, “I don’t send Christian holiday cards”. Twenty-something sales chickie put the box of cards back on the display, and without another word, skedaddled out of there. She was completely out of sight within five seconds.
Then we returned home and I made some carne asada tacos. 🙂
