When I was a small child I had a hatred for Costco because it was built right on top of the cool field where we would go and pretend we were being chased by velociraptors in the tall grass. In later years I realized that it maybe wasn't such a bad thing that Costco displaced the velociraptors. But, yesterday, I was thoroughly convinced. We (some work buddies and I) have a weekly tradition of going to eat lunch at Costco on Tuesdays. Whenever someone messes with Costco Tuesday I usually get cranky at them. Well, this week I was the one to mess with Costco Tuesday and they were cranky at me. What they didn't realize was that I was inspired. Since we didn't go on Tuesday we decided to go on Friday. What a joyful occasion it was. The above "Super Demo" sign was our first clue that happiness was about to fill our lives. Apparently they were promoting food that people should buy for the super bowl. They had tables and tables and tables of free samples.
All in all, I would say it was a Costco miracle. I don't even regret losing the velociraptors. Although, it's possible they're still there somewhere.
