On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
5 bags of wings!
4 calling phones
3 final tests
2 Praxis scores
And a mid-Atlantic winter snow storm
My boss is hosting a party on the day after Christmas for all the international students who aren't going home for Christmas. For that purpose, we took a trip to Costco today to get supplies and pre-packaged food items for the event.
Boy oh boy, it was a busy day at the Costco. Apparently, Thursday afternoon is prime time at Costco for all the retirees in the greater Provo-Orem area. HOWEVER, it was a great day for samples. And if there's anything I love, it's free samples. Whoever invented the program of handing out free samples of various foods/drinks/candies was a genius. The lunch of Lewis and me (he came with us) was provided by Costco today. For free.
We sampled, among other things:
-Drinkable yogurt (but actually good)
-Diet soda that looks deceivingly like water and tastes gross
-Costco brand's knock-off Vitamin Water
-Egg nog ice cream sandwiches (it was just okay)
-Dark chocolate truffles (they were brushed with cocoa powder which was weird and bitter, but overall I liked them. Lewis did not.)
-Veggie chips (which are really quite good)
-And other stuff that was apparently less memorable
Like I said, it was a great day for samples at the Costco.
