I think I'm still recovering from my illness... I slept most the day away. And when I woke, I was jonesing for a hamburger - my first in over a month. Maybe that's a sign I'm getting better.
I don't go for those well known burger joints. Instead I favor California grown chains... either In-N-Out or Tommy's. With gas prices being what they are, I opted for the closer to home Tommy's.
On the way up the mountain, I suddenly wanted a Coke. I gave up carbonated beverages several years ago and can honestly say I don't consume more than 10 in a year... and that's probably stretching it a bit.
Knowing I did not want a watered down fountain drink, I popped into the grocery store. They only had 20 ounce bottles in the cold cases up front. As I approached the case, I just about had a heart attack... A BUCK FIFTY??? FOR A COKE??? When did they get so pricey??? I know, I know... the price of everything is up. But a buck fifty for a nickel's worth of caramel in soda water???
Not wanting to pay that, I implored of the cashier..."Don't you have cans somewhere?" They didn't.
I stood in front of the case in a stunned stupor and finally, realizing I can't fight City Hall, I grabbed a Coke and got in line.
I think was still in shock when I got home with my burger. It was good. So was the Coke... but not a buck fifty good. Thank goodness I don't drink this crap that often! I'd be broke for sure.
