Chase the Giant Tin Pig, It's Worth It

Lately I have been encountering an unusual amount of extraordinary food as well as some unexpected good luck.  Topping this list would have to be last weekend's adventure to St. Vincent's de Paul thrift store, where I inadvertently discovered seven hundred and fifty dollars tucked into the right-side pocket of a sparkly cobalt blue blazer!!!  Yes, I kept it (Mom, please don't be angry).  My friends and I spent a considerable amount of time speculating where this money could have come from (drug deal gone wrong/forgetful rich old lady/prostitution ring?) but couldn't come to a final conclusion.  Have any interesting theories? Please share.

Second on my list would have to be the most delicious sandwich I have ever tasted in my twenty three years of life!  This mouth-watering pulled pork sandwich, purchased from the eccentric Maximus/Minimus giant pig truck circumnavigating downtown Seattle, features the perfect balance of spicy and sweet.  The succulent meat, the layer of fresh crunchy cilantro, and the generous sprinkle of shredded Beecher's Flagship cheese accompanied by a side of tangy cole slaw make this meal absolutely to die for (especially when followed up by dessert of beer and fluffy pink cotton candy).    


Last but not least, my boyfriend kindly gifted me a box of creamy chocolates from Fran's Chocolates.  The milk and dark chocolate salted caramels, which were by far my favorite, are a harmonious blend of soft buttery caramel and rich smooth chocolate topped with bold crunchy salt.  One dainty bite of these organic chocolates and you will no doubt experience an intense orgasm of the mouth!

  6. Did you actually BUY the blazer WITH the money tucked inside? Or did you just pocketed the money and walked out without the blazer?

    Horrible.

  9. haha @ oana roxana's comment...sparkly cobalt blue blazer, hmmm, maybe it was Elton John's coat in the 80's and he left some money in there?? lol

    oh, and wearing a bathing suit to the Barney's sale is definitely a good idea. To be honest, after shopping at Loehmanns (with their communal dressing rooms) I'm no stranger to stripping down, but there WERE guys working the sale so that was kind of awkward...

  14. @Laura. I spent at least fifty dollars at the thrift store I found the money at... then I went home and impulsively ordered a snake print Cynthia Vincent handbag!!

    @Jon. I did not purchase that hideous blazer. I think it would be considered social immodesty to wear in public (and it would most likely resulted in a trash and rotten tomato pelting).

  15. Wow, you lucky thing! I once found a whole wad of cash on the floor on my way home from the beach... I presumed drug money and kept it ;)
