Is It About To Freeze Over, Or Is The Requested Ice Water Melting?

Monday, I rushed over to The Devil's Playground because I was out of Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels. Actually, The Devil was out on my previous trip, and I'd just run out of two Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels.

Just my luck, I rounded the corner into the deli area, and there was a woman with a full cart, and a teenage girl. I really think she should have been in school! Because then she wouldn't have been able to pick up the last container of Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels, and wheedle her mother's permission to put it in the cart. Leaving only about a dozen Italian Style Pinwheels. Which nobody likes. Nobody. That's why they are always left on the shelf.

I swear, if I was in charge of The Devil's deli, I would stock three times as many Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels, the same Turkey and Cheese as they stock now, and do away with the Italian Style. But that's just me. I don't presume to be The Devil.

Good thing, too! Because when I had pulled up outside, it looked like The Devil had his hands full today.

Is it ironic, perhaps, that I call this place The Devil's Playground, and the service man there helping to resolve the situation is driving a truck with LORD on the side? Heh, heh. That amused me.

I think the source of the flooding was on the wall there, behind those carts. It looked like some kind of spigot. Maybe for washing carts, or for the fire department to hook up to in case of a conflagration.

Not my problem, since I'm not The Devil.

I'd say they used a firehose attached to that spigot and washed a ton of trash and germs out of all those trolleys.
The girl might have a perfectly good reason for being out of school, like getting over the flu or something. Too bad about the turkey cheese pinwheels though. What's in the Italian style ones?

I might have thought so, except for the way that water was flowing, and seeing the store manager hurrying out that door when I went in. But that would have made the LORD plumbing repair truck even more random, if it was parked there for no reason!

Maybe those turkey and cheese pinwheels have miraculous healing properties. But NOT the Italian Style. Which contain salami, pepperoni, provolone cheese, roasted red pepper spread, and romaine lettuce. I'm not a fan of pepperoni or salami. Here's a link with the description and a picture.


Take my word for it, the ones in my store don't look like that. Not nearly as much meat, and the sizes are not uniform.

How will you survive until your next shopping trip? What if they're still out of your pinwheels? Oh, the humanity!!

Hillbilly Mom said...

Never fear! I'm still kickin'! I made my own pinwheels when I got home (took 20 minutes), enough for two servings. Ate them that day and yesterday. TODAY, I went back, and the Chicken Bacon Ranch area was stocked!

Good thing nobody was between me and that delicacy, because I rushed over and took FOUR of them! Leaving two. Sure, they expire on Oct 11. It's not like I haven't eaten expired pinwheels before! I just take off the wilty lettuce, and the rest is still good.

River said...

I don't mind salami or pepperoni in small doses, like one slice per year, but I really hate provolone.

Hillbilly Mom said...

Mmm...I love provolone! That's about the only thing I'd like about the Italian Style pinwheels.
