As many of you know I am addicted to Safeway Foods coconut curry soup and buy it every chance I can. So, since we are in a large metropolitan area I searched the internet to see if there was a Safeway nearby where I could shop.
You can imagine my surprise and pleasure when I saw there was a Safeway only 9 miles away! So I headed out to do the grocery shopping with such high spirits. I drove past the Cub Foods that is much closer to our location, but I could taste the soup with each mile I traveled.
Soon I was in a not so desireable part of town but since I was so close and in a soup frenzy by now I persevered.
And then there it was! Safeway. But not the Safeway I was expecting. This was a dumpy corner building with bars on the windows and doors advertising liquor and tobacco.
I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry. Left Brain had no such dilemna - he laughed.
