Today is the day before Thanksgiving and a day off of work. While most rational and sane individuals would be more than happy to have the opportunity to sleep in and charge their batteries for the upcoming holiday, I was on a mission this morning. You see, Christmas (Cap'n) Crunch has been on the shelves for a few weeks now and I have yet to find a box.
I hit the shower at 4:30am and was out the door by 5:00. I had two hours before my kids would be awake -- two hours to find my box of Christmas Crunch. With Willie and the Wheel as my co-pilot, I was off. There are roughly 12-15 different grocery stores in the twin-city area and I would stop at every one if I had to. Coming home empty-handed was not an option.
Store #1. Nothing.
Store #2. Nothing.
Store #3. Nothing.
Store #4. Not open yet. Considering this place sells donuts and places that sell donuts are typically open at the crack of dawn each day, the fact that I was there before they opened made me consider for a second that I might be crazy. It was 5:45 in the morning and I was on my fourth stop looking for a box of cereal on a day that I should be sleeping in. Awesome. I L-ed OL and headed to my next stop.
Store #5. Jackpot.
I win again, Horatio.
