Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

We "order" food and supplies from Sam's Club. I use the term "order" loosely. Basically, we make a list and if we get what we order, then hurray for us. Sometimes, though, we get odd substitutions, or extreme quantities. Take the order of canned cheese soup. Last year, 6 gallons of nacho cheese came.

I once ordered Sweet and Low. I think it had 1,000 packets. Maybe 1,500? That was 3 years and two months ago. I just finished the last one today. So what did I open? A box of 1,000 packets of Splenda. I'm good for another 3 years. But don't worry. I have two boxes.

As for Ziplocs... I'm still living off the almost $100 supply I accidentally ordered from Sam's Club also three years ago.

And the cans of beans. I'm set for life.
