I was going to Amazon to drop off packages so why not see if Amazon Fresh had Diet Dr. Pepper and I could pick that up on the same stop. Here in the home of the mother ship, we have two kinds of Amazon Fresh. We have pick up and we have delivery. I wanted pick up. No go BUT delivery had them - exactly the form factor I wanted - for cheaper than Cash and Carry. Fine. They will be here between noon and 2. Saved me a stop. Yes, it costs me a $5 tip BUT I also get 5% off using the Amazon Visa card. I'm still ahead by about $5 on the case.
Then I got home and saw an interesting article on the new Amazon Go store. Yesterday, msconduct asked me about prices, this article shopped there and also at the QFC around the corner. (QFC is more pricey, I think, than Safeway - our two of the big chains. QFC is part of the Kroger empire.) The bottom line is that Amazon Go wins the price race and that's even before you factor in Prime Membership and the 5% Amazon Visa discount. Whoa Nellie.
Biggie is just bored. The Smalls is ok to sit for hours and nap and nod and just stare. But Biggie needs to be entertained. I ordered him a new toy which should be here today and if he likes it. We've had some Stickie sessions this morning and he seems to be winding down and ready for an afternoon nap.
I did pop into Uwajimaya. We are clearly at the end of Honey Tangerine season but I was able to find about 8 good ones. I'll miss 'em. I also got lunch - poke bowl and dinner - orange chicken. But, the store and the parking lot were really startlingly more empty than usual for mid morning mid week.
