So what do you buy when everything at your doomed favorite market is twenty-five percent off? Really weird stuff.

Booze, of course, for the holiday parties to come. The really good and crisp and salty tortilla chips you usually pass over because they're too pricey. Ditto for the hazelnuts and cashews and almonds that go into the holiday spicy nut mix. Giant Tapioca, because you've been looking at it for years now and wondering, what the heck is that? (I'll let you know.) Dr. Bob's Ice Cream, with its ingredient list of cream, sugar and chocolate. I mean, how can you go wrong? The fancy creme fraiche and even fancier butter, stinky cheese, strange mirco-brew from Oregon, avocados, limes, salt, salsa...

Wait! Is that a bottle of tequila? And limes and sugar and triple sec? Oh! And chips and salsa and the makings of guacamole? Ahhh, thank god it's Friday.
