Remember how I went on and on about how Mail Day was the Best Day Ever? How every other day pales in comparison? How it made everything better?? Remember that??
Turns out, I was wrong.
The MWR Frozen Locker Sale is the BEST DAY EVER! I did not realize what I was talking about with the stupid mail. Sure, it was fun to open the box, and yeah, that SINGLE SERVING of cupcake I ordered was inadequate, but still tres magnifique...
But the reality is, that cupcake is gone. AND, Mail day was sooooo three days ago. Mail day is pretty much akin to Windows 97. Sure, it was great while it lasted..But we've all moved on (and if you haven't you need to get the hell off of this blog because I don't even know you! What were you thinking!? Oh wait. Technically, I think my parents might still have windows 97...they also have dial-up, therefore, I never have to worry that my mom will read this and I will be grounded -- because I totally would be if she got wind of this! Nobody tell her!!!)
Anyway, The MWR Frozen Locker sale is sorta like mail day in that you never actually know when it will happen. Apparently, the Frozen Food Fairy arrives to reward Embassy workers who do not have access to a Commissary overseas (and who live in a country where the average temperature in springtime appears to be 117 degrees). And the best part: everything is $5 -- so I can totally do that math!!!
Normally, I would have been scandalized (and even considered writing a very strongly worded letter to my Congressman before I remembered that I am not actually sure who my Congressman is right now...But whoever they are, they are benefiting from a very lucky coincidence!) because a regular sized block of cream cheese is $5, but then I remembered that the cream cheese at Marwan Market would be $25 -- and then it seems just a little bits better. It's all relative.
Now if only I had a bagel....
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
