I buy far to much meat because I am a soft touch when it comes to a bargain.
Whilst many supermarket shoppers also enjoy a bargain, few people outside of America understand American bargains.
A European bargain would be five pence off something that costs ten pounds or collect 10 barcodes and send in for your one pound voucher off future purchases. American bargains make your brain numb. Buy one individual packet of pretzels, insufficient to sustain life in a mouse for one dollar, or buy a sack of pretzels to feed the 5000 for one dollar fifty. As a result I am forcd to drive home with the equivalent of half a zebra carcass in the trunk.
I drag in the carcass and check for leaks as I reach the comparative safety of home. My spouse accosts me in the kitchen. “What on earth is that?” he accuses.
“Half a zee… er … meat.”
“What are we going to do with it all?”
“I meant, how are we going to store it prior to that eventuality?”
“Yes, it was on offer at the farmer’s market, I couldn’t resist.”
“Which would you prefer?”
“Penicillicin on the bread or maggots on the meat?”
Moral – buy the new freezer prior to buying the bargains
And in my other "life".....
