In my last post I gave you a brief run down of my plans for today. Here's what actually happened. I did end up at Walmart after briefly flirting with a visit to the local version of Safeway. I got my bottled water. I also regrettably bought a few other items I should have resisted (Fritos Corn Chips and Bean Dip, for starters).
The BBQ idea? Out the window when I actually counted my cash. I decided to get some eats on the cheap and ended up at the Taco Bell drive-thru ordering two 99¢ bean "burritos". They weren't too bad after I squirted some hot sauce into them.
As for the Bud Light, it wasn't cold after all. It sat unrefrigerated off in a corner. I had some other cheaper beer, but I was barely able to consume two cans before throwing in the towel.
I was for some unknown reason rooting for the Colts, and they lost to the Saints, who did indeed go marching in. I can't agree that this means that New Orleans is "back", which is just silly. These kinds of wins are great for millionaire team owners and players (subsidized in most cases by the state, with publicly financed stadiums and other taxpayer funded perks) but they don't really mean much for anyone else. However, if the Colts had won I might be singing a different tune right now, but for no discernible reason. I don't even like the Colts and I don't dislike the Saints. I just don't care, I guess.
