BUT… instead of complaining or commiserating… I instead will get back to the reason so many of you bother to click over here.
An amusing story!
A few weeks ago I was in San Francisco hanging out with the delightful Stacy. The weather was clear, the streets were full of the usual colorful characters…
We headed to Japan Town for some shopping and spent time in an adorable mall. I wish I had taken photos, the place was amazingly designed and decorated.
And they had a Dollar store.
Let me just say… I love Dollar Stores. You can find some of the weirdest stuff there… and this was a Japanese Dollar Store… sot he possibilities were endless!
After spending time looking at the mini cups and plates, the random muffin holders and straws and stickers and some odd shaped things that it was impossible to know for certain what we were looking at… we headed to the front of the store.
“I’m thirsty,” I told Stacy. She waved me towards the fridge cooler and I ran over and grabbed a bottle of water off the top shelf.
Outside I opened it up and took a huge swig… of what was definitely NOT water.
It looked like water.. it was clear. The label was dark blue with white writing.. like so many of the bottled water companies do….
Closer inspection of the bottle showed me this:
Post Script: Stacy by the way had noticed what it was that I had been mindlessly purchasing. She told me she just thought I was “hard core” and had passed it off as one of those wacky things that make me so much fun.
Little did she know.
Oh… and because I know you are all curious, it tasted like lemon lime water.
