The Not So Fantastic Reality:

The above story was inspired by the following tidbits I encountered today:

ONE:      I am a member of Costco. Being a member of a big box wholesale store has many benefits but one, in my book anyway, outshines them all. Their hotdogs. Yeah, I know, hotdogs are unhealthy (not to mention they are not the most ladylike food to eat) but I love them and make no apologies.

Yeah... not pretty.

Plus, they are only $1.50 AND you get a fountain drink of your choosing thrown into the deal. It’s awesome. So when Andy announced that he would like to go to Costco today to check it out, all I could think about was getting my hands on one of those suckers and inhaling it. I’m not proud of this (but still make no apologies). So as we wondered the aisles, taking in the giant boxes of cereal and two ton bags of kitty litter I was counting down to the moment when we would check out and finally, I could say those magical words: “One hotdog, please!”. I’m quite serious when I say that I intend on keeping up my membership primarily for the privilege of devouring these foot-long beauts whenever I so chose… it’s totally worth the $50 annual fee. Totally.

Ok, this one MAY be a little better than Costco's...

Love & Squirrels.
