You can buy a $200 electric fan on one side of the store and a $7 golf shirt on the other. I just stopped in for toothpaste.
I found a great deal last week, or so I first thought. Best Buy had a 52″ LCD HDTV on their website for $9.99. I clicked “add to cart” and proceeded to the checkout screen. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the shipping & handling costs were more then 7 times the cost of this so called bargain. Of course, I said “No thank you, sir!” So be carefully when shopping online and watch those shipping costs.
If not for Twitter and Facebook, I would have no idea what day of the week it is. Almost every day I get a reminder. Monday always gets the most attention. All those messages of hate, it’s like I’m reading Garfield. Friday comes in second with TGIF. Wednesday gets a few “hump day” joke. The weekends get “Finally Saturday!” and “I can believe it’s already Sunday.” And once a month or so someone will even through Thursday a little love with “Ugh, is it Friday yet?” The only one left out in the cold is today, Tuesday.
I was fixing my usual morning meal, yogurt with pineapple and granola, and a side of bacon.
When I pulled the three strips of precooked bacon out, one had a nasty spot. No big deal. Sometimes there’s a charred spot or two, I just pick them off and eat the good stuff. But this was different, something had been added and even discolored the greasy paper.
I’m not saying it’s mouse poo, but just to be safe, I tossed out the remaining 2 and 7/8th strips, along with the rest of the box, and this pictured bit.
From now on, I thing I’ll skip the precooked bacon.
