Still got it...

I know, probably the lamest picture you have ever seen, but read the story, and it will make sense..and hey I got a camera for christmas, leave me alone..

I am far from being a "spontaneous" person. In fact, my over evaluation of every decision rarely lets me act without thinking (probably good in most circumstances).

Yet tonight, the minute I heard there was Gingerbread syrup to be purchased, I was out of the door within minutes. Generally, the syrup is not for sale. You know, speciality....keep the customer wanting more - all that marketing garbage. But for some reason, a co-worker from my store was downtown last night and she saw that it was on the sale shelf. So I got in the car with Stef, and booked it downtown...

You have to know, I am pretty obsessed with this syrup. It's to the point that I phoned four stores today to find one that had some left over. Anyway, when I got to the store, the guy said "thought you weren't going to make it". And I told him that it took longer than I thought, coming from Surrey and all. He was literally shocked. He said "Surrey" incredulously like about 4 times...and then he gave me "two for the price of one" because of the "gas money". What buddy didn't realize, is that I would have paid double for those two bottles...

So there you go...I still have some moments of ridiculousness left over from our 45 minute drives to Krispy Kreme (what were we thinking, those donuts don't even taste that good...) And now, I will be drinking Gingerbread lattes through March. Oh yes....

good job Sharelle. You have to admit, the Krispy Kreme runs were quite fun. The fact that we were going into another country made it all the more adventurous:)

I like that you're determined. And seriously, this M-how business...how long do you think it will be till she caves and starts her own blog? We finally got Laura on board, I'm thinking Megan will be next...

Way to go! I LOVE the syrup too and laughed so hard at your story. I can just picture the guy saying "surrey?" So funny.
Thanks for your great comments:)
