Dear Edina Liquors . . .

Monday's Purchases

Dear Edina Liquors,

Yes, there IS a reason for my weekly purchase of a large cardboard box chock full of liquor, cordials, champagne, and various liqueurs.  Please rest assured that it is not because I am going on a bender, bout or undertaking any other variety of bacchanalian carousing.

Tuesday's Purchases

Its true that things looked a bit grim last week.  Really, I can understand the concern over what must have appeared to be an escalating situation.  What is one to think when such a regular and, well, awfully enthusiastic, consumer of intoxicating wares appears promptly at the door at 9:01 a.m. looking exhausted, pale, sweaty, clad in rather tatty sweats, with abominable hair and not a stitch of makeup (save a swipe of Burt's Bees tinted lip balm), three weekday mornings in a row?

Wednesday's Purchases

Truth be told, a bender would have been rather glamorous and enjoyable compared to last week's extensive four day re-shoot of 27 jelly shot portraits at the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen.  (Long story.  Book related.  More later . . .)

So, Edina Liquor staff, thank you for your concerned and knowing looks.  Its nice that you care . . .



P.S.  If you have a moment, would you mind shouting out to the folks at the grocery store that my recent bi-weekly Knox gelatin mini-case purchases are unrelated to any health issue.  Thanks!
