It's beginning to look a lot like Aldi
Today it was a trip to Albrecht Discount.
It is funny, I walked in kind of stressed out. Of course Aldi has a way of de-stressing you as soon as you walk in the door. Because that is where they put the chocolate from Germany and Austria. You get Belgian and French chocolate in the center of the store but they put that high-octane stuff right by the entrance.
Oh yes. Oh yes. Yes.
So zombie-like I buy chocolate. I love the dark chocolate with chili. Then I advance to the center of the store. And I ran into my friend Mike! He is the husband of my friend Melinda. Things begin looking up. I ran into someone I like. I am ahead in the game of life. We began talking awestruck about the Aldi chocolate.
Then after he leaves I go down this aisle and a stranger points out the greatness of this moose where, you pull some cord or push some button, the moose opens his big mouth and starts biting at you and singing a Christmas carol. All of us suddenly are gathered around this sight and laughing.
Is that Buffalo or what? All of a sudden I was in a good mood.
This morning I got up at 6 and worked on the book and then worked out on the elliptical machine while listening to Pennario playing Chopin preludes, in expectation of such baking.
The weather may feel like California but still I am ready for Christmas. Thanks to Aldi!
This is funny, a while ago I was walking into Aldi behind two women. And I heard one woman say to the other, "I love this store."
