News, but not the serious kind
Wolfing down those free samples?
Blog Guy, I’m going out to lunch. Wanna come along?
Thanks, I ate already. Spicy Peanut Chicken Kebabs with Satay Sauce, and Blue Cheese with Roasted Pecan Dip, over at Trader Joe’s.
Yummmmm! That sounds great! Trader’s has a restaurant now?
Nah, you know, they put out those itty-bitty paper cups with free samples for shoppers to try.
One tiny cup wouldn’t fill you up.
I went back for more.
You can have seconds? I never knew that!
Sure. They don’t try to cut you off until the 17th time, and they don’t call security until a couple more visits after that.
So by then you’re full, huh?
No, then I switch to my disguises in the restroom. A wolf head, big nose and mustache, sombrero, wax teeth, stuff like that.
Sometimes I use a limp, or put a cast on my leg, or speak only Estonian…
I can’t believe this. Just for a few free snacks you go to a men’s room to get into disguises?
Of course not. I use the women’s. The mirror is much better for putting on my theatrical make-up.
