Item Purchased: Small Fireside Blend Coffee from Caribou
Price: $1.70 + tax
Note: I hate to admit it, but this was my only purchase for the day. That’s not the shameful part, the shame comes in when I confess that I didn’t buy anything else today because there was a large box of donuts at work and I survived off of sugary holiness, water and more coffee that was brewed for the UIC writer’s group that came in tonight. Cigarettes? My friend Frank visited the store and bestowed upon me a pack of American Spirits because I used to bum him smokes all of the time when we worked together.
