This is a real conversation Mike and I had yesterday. It was Sunday, which means our options on dinner for the kids were limited (as Monday is grocery day). I do know, for certain, that we had two cans of beef-a-roni in our pantry...but I wasn't planning to bathe the kids last night, and unless I wanted to send them to school a strange shade of orange, that option was out.
Hamburgers. We have, like, 100 hamburgers from Sam's in our freezer. Buns, however, were the problem.
Mike (as we were exiting Hwy. 44): Does Quik Trip sell buns?
Me: You can't get them there, you'll pay an arm and a leg. How about Sam's?
Mike: Do we need 400 buns?
Quick Trip won. And amazingly, had buns for somewhere in the range of $2.75, if you're wondering (not great, but not highway robbery either). And Mike made a point to mention that it was such a miracle, being able to exit Quik Trip so efficiently, since apparently, he is now arm and leg-less.
