Remember in my earlier posts about it being the start of low season and everything closing up early? Turns out, that affected the food industry as well. Since our deck had not one, but two grills, we decided it might be fun to grill something for dinner. We found a grocery store, strolled around for awhile, but nothing struck our fancy. So we decided Chinese delivery sounded great, bought some candy and left.
Get back to B&B, find the menu, and notice that they don’t offer delivery service between October and April. Great! Fantastic! We peruse through the rest of the menus that would deliver–at least in October–but nothing sounded as good, so we opted to go back into town to pick up dinner. Besides, I needed coffee supplies anyway–because thankfully while April was reading the menu, I was exploring kitchen supplies and noticed the only coffee on hand was decaf. DECAF! DEEEEEECAAAAAAFFFFFFFF. Who does that?!?!? Plus it also allowed us to pick up blizzards at Dairy Queen–so in the end, it was quite a successful jaunt into town.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Chinese
delivery take-out: it’s 7:40pm when we call. It’ll take about 30 minutes, can we be there by 8pm? Uh, what? Okay [definitely not arguing with getting our food faster]. She gives me the price and the address and just happens to mention not to be late because they close at 8pm. Okay. BY 8PM [she just keeps repeating this]. Message received loud and clear. We arrive at 7:53pm because, well, we definitely wanted our food–not just because we were hungry–rather we weren’t sure if any other food options would still be open other than the 24-hour gas mart. At this point we were even panicking that DQ might be closed.
Fortunately it was still open.
With food, blizzards, and coffee supplies in our hot little hands, we returned back to the B&B for a quiet night in, playing Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit. And for those of you in my life who think I’m a LotR’s fanatic, I just want you to know that April kicked my ass!
