Figured I’d write the post and come up with a title later.  Let’s see how this turns out.

At the local supermarket the other day pushing a cart and trying to avoid oncoming traffic in the cereal aisle.  I saw a piece of paper on the floor and asked my nearest fellow shopper if it belonged to him.  He say it was not his.  But may be he denied ownership because of the list’s contents.

It read thusly: ( Caps are my comments)

Eat up tuna salad – GOOD CALL

Steak & mashed poto – ( WHY WASTE ALL THAT TIME AND LETTERS WHEN YOU KNOW THAT POTO MEANS POTATO – OR DOES IT?)

Dad and Steve – take hot pocket and donuts are ours – ( SOUNDS LIKE A DEADLY COMBO)

Routers at Walmart ( IF YOU SAY SO)

gym? ( ARE YOU ASKING ME OR TELLING ME?)

2 breads, 2 milks, chips, 1 meat, cheese, tp, vodka, sugar – NOTE: (YOU CAN’T BUY LIQUOR IN A GROCERY STORE IN MY STATE.  BOOZE IS A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF THE LEGISLATURE WHICH BY THE WAY STILL HAS NOT PASSED A BUDGET WHICH WAS DUE JUNE 30TH)

The budget impasse is causing school districts to borrow money at taxpayer expense for payrolls and other expenditures.  County governments are threatening to sue the state, our state, their state to release funds that should have be disbursed months ago.

We are spending money to get money.  Some counties are withholding tax revenue payments to the state which may or not be legal so we’ll have to spend more money to find out if it is.

Suddenly vodka makes perfect sense.  I wonder if the list belonged to my local state rep?  His name really is Steve.
