I might have started a small 'uprising' . . .
Well not really an uprising, more of a 'bad memory' fest! I was shopping at Trader Joe's with Francesca last night when I overheard two of the employees talking about how they found a DOLLAR and were gonna use said buck to buy two cans of beer from TJ's! Since I knew them, I just said it kinda sounded like the old Alpha Beta store brand simply labeled 'Beer'! This brought ANOTHER employee into the conversation bringing up Cisco! Not to be outdone, I heard someone mention King Cobra Malt Liquor! Not to be deterred, someone ELSE remembered the old days of NIGHT TRAIN! (lot's of groans of past hangovers. I beleive the 'coup de grace' was when I innocently talked about MAD DOG 20/20! There was an even LOUDER groan (mixed with laughter) at THAT old drink, along with the 'never heard of that', from the younger of the now LARGISH crowd around the '10 items or less' line'!
I had to leave, Francesca was patiently waiting, but when I left, I thought I overheard inquiries of where one might still PURCHASE some of the mentioned items! Oh LORD, I hope I didn't start a HUGE backwards leap to the drinks of old!!!!
