Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think.  

I know it's Cinco de Mayo. I know that, in theory, that is mostly about tequila. In fairness, I celebrated early by drinking a - and my apologies to Harper Lee - Tequila Mockingbird. 

So that drink was had in P-town, which is gay, Gay, GAY. 

Actually, it is and isn't. My last time there seemed exhausting - as everything was Gay 24 x 7. Maybe because it was off season (barely) and Covid, it was a good mix. And many things were still not open. 

Alas, the liquor store was. Wine was bought. But they had Absolut bottles with the Roy G Biv colours and the such. 

......and for the more fetish oriented crowd...........they had this..........

Morty was more amazed it wasn't tied into the Finlandia brand of vodkas, which does seem like a missed marketing opportunity.  

And if it smelled like black leather, they might get more sales from a faction of the gay vodka buying public. 

I stuck with the wine.

I’m lucky I don’t drink anymore, I’d love to see P’town in style but I never could just drink one! Funny that someone has capitalized on TofF booze. So few people except nerds like my Science teacher and now me , really even knew what ROY G BIV was. Now I know that the spectrum will survive even if its memory is kept only by a man in Cleveland Ohio, who saw it on a Vodka bottle. Tell Morty , there is a reason they used the old terms, well brands and call brands. Glad you are back in plain sight.

I might buy that bottle, and I am not a big vodka drinker.
