So I found myself at the liquor store, where I don't go very often. Years could pass without me setting foot in a liquor store, which is probably good since the minute I enter through the doors I am consumed with guilt. As though I've already done something wrong (I have no similar guilt over buying a bottle of wine at the grocery store - but something about the liquor store does this to me every time). Like just in crossing the threshold I have done very bad things.
I found the vodka and then something strange happened as I was meandering my way out of the store. It started with the amaretto. Instantly I felt the need to make amaretto cake. Then there was the Malibu rum. Didn't I see a recipe for Malibu rum cupcakes recently?
As you might imagine, I had major impulse buy fails, and then I'm walking to the checkout with my arms loaded by two bottles of vodka, a bottle of amaretto, and a bottle of Malibu rum. Party at my house! I hung my head in shame as the cashier scanned my driver's license. Is there a limit to how much you can buy? Was he going to flag me for future stores?
Still...I must say. That amaretto cake? It made it all worth it!
