Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Proud of my resolve...

Recently, my wife asked me to start stopping at the liquor store on the way home to pick up boxes for packing, as we get ready to jump from one apartment to another. 

This plays right into my salesman and shopping related weakness.  Historically, I have been unable to swing into the liquor store 'just to get boxes'...I feel compelled to purchase something if I am going to partake of the bounty of free, empty boxes they have lining the front wall of the store.

Today was the 2nd straight time I have walked in, and left with boxes, without buying alcohol. 

Of course, what I am not as proud to admit is that I still walked around the store for 10 minutes looking at alcohol, I just couldn't find anything that was a good enough deal to justify buying it.
