Jeeves, dust the bar and pour a round! desert needs a night here. Vacation getting too busy, must relax.
So, I got to thinking, what if MrD and I put the rv in an orbit in space, viewing that big blue Earth from the window next to me, instead of the
harbor view I now have. So, I faxed SpaceX with my list of supplies I would need every now and then to replenish what I use up, and they politely
replied, "Ma'am, you would need a Saturn V rocket for all that stuff! Maybe if you could pare it down, just to the essentials, and recontact us.
Sincerely, SpaceX PS Are you sure you wouldn't be over the weight limit for your rv?"
I was going to reply, informing them that all that stuff would be weightless in space, duh! Then I thought, oh, maybe they meant on Earth. Now THAT'S
a different story. Maybe they're right...but I NEED all that stuff. I've got a Bug-Out-RV!
I tried, Spira, to pare down the list, but I think that case of sherry is a necessity, especially on vacation. I'm not going to show up tipsy to
work, but, by golly, I will sip sherry as I enjoy sunrises and sunsets and visiting relatives on my time!
So, Paul Masson sherry it is for us! Did you know that Paul Masson sherry was selected and specially packaged for outer space, but teetolaling
citizens protested the item, and it never made it to the old Skylab? ....of course, I never made it there, either, so let's pour a schooner now.
...I've never sailed on a schooner, either...
Before we left on vacation, MrD wanted to get the latest fast food gimmick advertised by a chain that fries chicken, ala a certain southern state, and
who uses a recipe of some old guy in a white suit. I, too, used to go there, once a year, but this time was different. What was it, what was
it?...Yikes! The small package of honey morphed into a honey "sauce", and the butter had become a "buttery spread", looking much like a type of
grease my dad kept in the workshop when I was a kid growing up (and I feared it probably spread and tasted like that lubricant!). And as if honey,
already made cheaper by importing it from China, wasn't cheap enough, it had to be the fourth ingredient in some recipe that produced a product that
looked like some kind of salve from my childhood medicine cabinet (which probably spread and tasted like that oinment, too!).
Jeeves, another round of sherry, please. Then a story about the tsunami debris on the beach.
