The Unthinkable

Earlier this week, E mentioned that her mother wanted us to bring some Corky's BBQ sauce when we visit for Thanksgiving in a few weeks. It seems the supermarkets in southern Florida don't carry that brand. I shrugged it off assuming that I'd misheard or that perhaps she was joking. She's from Memphis. She should know better.

Tonight at the grocery store I purchased two bottles of Corky's original recipe. It was difficult, and though the shame must have been written all over my face, the cashier was polite enough not to make mention. I'm expecting to collect quite a few points in the "Who's the best son-in-law ever?" competition.

not so sure about how many points you'll actually get. i'm thinking her other son-in-law wouldn't have told the whole internet that he thinks his mother-in-law is nuts for liking Corky's.

i don't know how many points only getting TWO bottles will earn you anyway! TWO bottles??? what is she supposed to do with that? you should buy 3 more and send them to me...so that i can give them to keith to give to her!

if she is from memphis and likes corky's you have to force your will upon her, make her some more better bbq or at least take her some kraft bbq sauce. (which is abut the same)
