You see, Costco is basically a free buffet on the weekends. Hair and beard-netted folks seduce you with sizzling sausage, delicious spreads, crunchy snacks, and on and on. Dave had made the cardinal shopping mistake...going grocery shopping on an empty stomach.
Did that guy catch up to me as I wandered up and down crowded aisle after crowded aisle? Rather than a companion, I have to say he was more of an annoying little gray haired gnat that kept doing fly by after fly by, barely slowing down to say he'd sighted yet another sample on the horizon before he buzzed off again.
OK, OK, I can't really fault him too much. Had I been hungry and had there not been an unusually high number of vitamin K-containing samples, I probably would've joined him. But, then I wouldn't have had this to write about and I'd have to resort to the story about my puppy's personal problem...savin' it for tomorrow.
Fun with pencil.
