ON THE BACK BURNER

Aug. 26

I've never wanted to follow a man home before, but I was really tempted today . He was in line just ahead of me while we were checking out at one of the two grocery stores here in PT. You know the line" I want what she is having".? Well me too, but what he had in his basket. Or better, what he could cook for me what he had in his basket. While I was in line, I had several scenarios  going about him. In his basket,he  had steaks, plural, 2 bottles of wine, lamb chops, salmon, I could see three packages, deli containers of interesting treats, coffee, Starbuck's. No cleaning products , no basics, like TP or paper towels. Just the fun , good stuff. Easy to cook. No veggies. Total of his order, $179.00. He paid by check. And he did seem surprised about the amount. My scenario.. recently divorced, wife out of town,sailing solo and anchored here. After I checked out, I tried to see where he  had parked his car, so I could see what kind of a car he was driving. I was too slow. Now he will never invite me to dinner.
