Years ago, Hick came home from the auction and said he almost bought me some meat. Recoiling with horror, I made it clear that I would NOT be eating any auction meat.
"I figured you wouldn't, so I didn't buy it."
"But what kind was it? I'm curious..."
"I don't know. It was in a square box that had MEAT on the side."
No thank you!
Anyhoo... last Friday, Hick took his Cancer Friend to her chemo. He always hopes she feels well enough afterwards to traipse through assorted stores to allow him to buy items on special that are limited to two per person! Even I felt it was wrong of him to expect this of my rival, Lotus Flower! [Not going through an explanation of The Good Earth again!]
Apparently, Lotus Flower was not up to snuff, because Hick only got two of the guns on sale, when he was wanting to buy four. Let the record show that Hick was NOT too disappointed to reveal his meat! Right there in front of Lotus Flower.
While coming out of Rural King, Hick saw a trailer that was selling MEAT! A box for $100. Of course this was like redneck catnip to Hick. He eagerly approached to see what all the hubbub was about.
"That guy was sellin' filets! They was 12 to a box, for $100. I told him I didn't have room for that many. And asked if I could buy half a box for $50. He said okay. So I got us 6 filets for $50. We can pay me back later. I'm keeping them in my buddy's freezer while we sit and talk like every Friday, after I drop off my friend."
"Huh. That seems kind of expensive."
"Val! It's filet mignon! You can't find it for that price in a store. Not even Save A Lot. Well. Probably you can't find ANY filet mignon in Save A Lot. But it's a steal."
Okay. So Hick put three in the freezer of FRIG II, and three in FRIG II proper, to thaw out for grilling on Sunday. We were all looking forward to the meal. Especially Hick and The Pony, confirmed carnivores.
