I raced over to Costco after work today in search of one thing -- more bottles of Volver (see yesterday's post). I approached the very same spot I found it on Sunday and there were only three bottles there. More than I remembered but still no where near what I was hoping for. I asked the stocker working on rearranging the strawberry display and he found someone else who declared there were 39 bottles in the store, according to the computer.
I'm pretty quick at math -- that meant there were three cases in addition to the three bottles I was coveting in my shopping basket. See....I told you I was good at math! The search for the remaining cases proved challenging. Using my flashlight app on my phone I perused the cases and cases beneath the wine display. Nothing. The stock clerk eventually spotted them way up high on the second shelf, wrapped in plastic. Over came the hi-lo driver, who rescued the wine and placed a case in my basket.
Is one case enough, I pondered. Hmmm, it would have to do today. Maybe I'll go back again tomorrow.
