The Wife and I went to Pensacola this weekend. More about that later.
But, on the way back, we stopped for gas at Greenville, Alabama.
And, at that exit, there's a Russell Stover outlet.
So, like a couple of kids in a candy store, we walked around, pointing, wanting this, wanting that. And, when it was all done, we didn't get that much.
They had a special on the Whitman Samplers. So, we got 8 12-ounce boxes.
And a pound of pecan clusters.
And various other small items.
Gifts, you see.
No, really. They were gifts.
Anyhow, we got up to the register, and I noticed they had a fountain Coke machine. So, I ordered a large Diet Coke.
They didn't have any large cups.
What did they have?
"Well, then," I said, "I'll have this 8 pounds of chocolate, and a small Diet Coke."
So, we got our stuff and left.
We drove back towards the house, me sipping on my Diet Coke.
And, we got back to the house with around 7 pounds of chocolate.
Oh, did I say the chocolates were gifts?
I had to counter that Diet Coke with something.
