The “E” is for errands…the “BS” is not hard to figure out. These occur about every two weeks and involve me having to be in Manhattan past nine o’clock in the morning.  I don’t like to be in Manhattan after seven or so. The sun blinds me and the traffic is terrible, and the stores are packed with people.  Today was really bad because it was the first day of classes. However, the liquor cabinet was getting low, and I had to pay some insurance, so, there I was.  I am eagerly anticipating the day when the grocery stores can sell liquor, as in most civilized states. It will be much cheaper and I can combine it with grocery shopping at six in the morning. I am not optimistic.  This proposal is opposed by an unholy alliance of bible thumping conservatives and liquor store owners, the former because it would destroy the morality of our children who would see the liquor while grocery shopping with mommy, the latter because it will destroy them. My only hope is that Kroger, Wal Mart and HyVee have enough financial clout to push this through.
Of course, Brownback would veto, not realizing that he could get his communion wine much cheaper…or, maybe the Catholics just take water and change it…I really don’t know. It is odd though, that my uncle married a Catholic and she made him drink…at least according to my grandmother.  A poor sailor victimized by a Catholic. He died at age 43 of Gin…I hope she is ashamed of herself…well she’s dead now too so I guess it doesn’t matter.

Even if grocery stores can carry liquor, the chances of them being allowed to sell it at 6 AM are pretty slim. Isn’t it 9 AM now?

Hadley… with your love of cats, why don’t you start your own liquor store and cathouse in Hooterville??  Early morning errands to the big City would no longer be necessary.  Call it “Hadley’s Hooch and Hotties”!!!!!!!

Stacia,
Last time I was in Missouri…Springfield about two years ago…you could buy it at 6AM.  If I recall correctly there are a few hours in the middle of the night that you can’t purchase it. However, you are probably right that Kansas won’t go for that
