The List

I knew where everything was and there would be no mistakes. An in-and-out job. I had the ingredients listed by location: baguette, basil, garlic, pine nuts, linguini, wine… a white Bordeaux... salad fixin’s. It was when I got home that I realized the one key ingredient pasta and shrimp pesto needs is… the freaking SHRIMP!

  5. Go to the store and forget the key ingredient, been there and done that several times. When I do and my wife discovers what I have done its one of the few times I actually believe she might kill me.

  9. I think we've all done something similar a time or two. (And I tell ya, it has absolutely nothing to do with age!) Worse than that, though, was the time I wrote my detailed list, coupled it with an envelope of the appropriate coupons, and then blithely walked out the door ... without them.

  12. Susan is right, it has nothing to do with age. I have gone to the store for salt, because we were out. Sixty dollars later I came home, without salt. Arrrggghhh.
