It was FREE SAMPLE DAY AT PRICE CHOPPER.
And it wasn't even one of the shitty ones where they give you a tiny Dixie cup of fruit salad and send you on your way. They were making WINGS. And PIZZA. And they were GENEROUS.
Naturally, K and I hovered casually near the table until the crowd dissipated. Then, we pretended to be disinterested in the merchandise until the lady with the apron turned to us and lifted the magic lid to the magic tray bearing all sorts of delectables. Then she uttered the words I'd longed to hear:
"Would you like to try a free sample?"
Are you kidding me? Of course I would. But I played it coy, said "Oh? A free sample? That would be great, thank you."
K chose a honey BBQ flavored wing and I chose a hot one.
And it was everything I dreamed it could be.
But my excitement got the best of me when I went to take the last bite of my wing and DROPPED it on the FLOOR.
"Would you like to try another flavor?" She asked, unknowing.
While I bent down to slyly collect my mess and slip the bone into the trash, K and I gave each other a look and contemplated the possibilities. What if we each took another flavor, and kept eating until the tray was gone? Or better yet, what if we took the whole tray and walked around continuing our shopping trip? They don't think about these things when they set up FSD. We decided to take the high road and got out of there unscathed, but damn, was I tempted.
Thank you, Free Sample Day, for reminding me why I need to have self control. And class.
