Scene: Standing in line at Building 19 with two Inauguration of Barack Obama commemorative water bottles, behind a woman with five or six of the same type of water bottles.

MRP: You know those water bottles have typos on the labels?!
Lady in front of MRP: I know! That’s why I’m buying them!

True story.

Even if you don’t know what Building 19 is (a chain of local stores that offer deep, deep discounts on remainders, discontinued items, etc.), the fact that these water bottles were on sale for 19 cents should tell you something.

  1. How can mention of Bldg 19 make me homesick? Were you at the one in Framingham (I forget its fraction)? Pretty sure we picked up NKOTB folders for SBOG there one year. The original one in Hingham had everything from remaindered books to legit oriental rugs when I was growing up. And those circulars… sigh.
