bite at the providores market

May 10, 2010

I have learnt many things in this short little life of mine, but none so important as this:

Never, ever, make a man go shopping on an empty stomach download google news.

It is simple rule, but one that is oh-so-easily-forgotten when a girl is faced with the excitement that is warehouse sales and the ability to purchase inexplicable quantities of oil and chocolate herunterladen.

It is a good thing, then, that men-who-submit-themselves-to-semi-necessary-shopping are also rather good at locating the nearest place to grab a bite afterwards music legally and free of charge.

Even more fitting then, that the place appointed to grab a bite was named “Bite” (and oh, there I go with my non-witticisms repost! I apologise. Profusely.)

I’d been to Bite before, one sunny Wednesday afternoon some two-and-a-half or so years ago powerpoint designs herunterladen. Back in the days when I spent my days decked out in all things fashionable and wore makeup as a rule, rather than as an exception.

In the days of marketing at a giant cosmetics conglomerate, where running up three flights of stairs whilst carrying a box full of product samples was par for the course, and where everyone was always on a diet of coffee and water and coffee again Basic Law for.

It was a farewell lunch. I think. And I was the only person who ordered anything heartier than a salad. Hm.

Not so today, as the sun played hide and seek behind a swathe of clouds and the VTB umm-ed and ahh-ed over whether to get a coffee minecraft texture pack 1.8 9 for free.

“If you get a hot chocolate, I’ll share it with you?” said I, and like that the deal was done.

The hot chocolate was milkier than it was chocolate, but no matter, for it was essentially his and not mine, and there was just under 5 kilograms of assorted chocolate sitting in the car for us to make amends with minecraft free download android.

Dreary Saturdays call for porridge, and it was porridge I got for the grand ol’ price of $9.50 and came warm and brown-sugary with a drizzle of berries and a dollop of yoghurt hidden in the middle amazon prime video auf englisch herunterladen.

A splash of milk, and then another before spoonfuls of warm deliciousness were downed with gusto.

The VTB had other thoughts, and selected a bacon & egg roll with spinach and tomato relish adobe reader herunterladen kostenlos. Which was delicious, but not porridge. (And those of you who have ever had porridge on the brain will understand why I am so fixated. Those of you who have not… well, I guess, would not.)

And like that, the meal was done. So off we trekked back through the cloud covered streets and to a car with its boot full of goodies, and still no idea about what to do with all of that oil and chocolate.

    Never make a man go shopping. Ever.

    Except for waistcoats.

    Glad you made it through, you porridge-loving, more-energetic-than-mortal woman.
