We left our heroes in the checkout line of Super Fresh on a, well let's call it a Friday night, yeah. Late one Friday night. BogoGirl was preparing to purchase Store brand crinkle cut fries.
BOGO: Two for one!
Yes. Two for one. And Late Night Supermarket Man was trying to assess the Ketchup situation.
LNSM: I think we have enough.
BOGO: Or do we?
LNSM: No, I think we do.
BOGO: Should we
get more, just in case? It's very important. It's of the UP Most importance.
LNSM: What did you say?
BOGO: I said it's of the UP Most
LNSM: With a P?
BOGO: It's of the UP Most
LNSM: The UTT-Most importance?
LNSM: It's UT-Most, not Up Most.
BOGO: It is?
Meanwhile, a line began to form behind our heroes as they argued the idiom. Let's fast forward.
We rejoin our heroes after a brief fast-forwarding back at their hideout where indeed, there WAS NOT enough Ketchup.
BOGO: I told you.
LNSM: You did?
BOGO: I don't remember. Scroll
Just then, the phone rang.
LNSM: It's the Special Phone!
Yeah, that's the best we could do. The Special Phone. Deal with it. It was ringing.
LNSM: It's Grandpa Shelly.
BOGO: Maybe he has a mission for us.
LNSM: Will you let me answer it!
Just then, Late Night Supermarket Man, answered the phone.
LNSM: Was that necessary?
Just answer it.
GS: Late Night Supermarket Man, I have a mission for you.
What is it, Grandpa Shelly?
GS: I can't tell you over the phone. It's
not safe. I've got the mission right here on my computer. I'll print it out for
LNSM: You do understand, Grandpa Shelly, that by not revealing the
mission over the phone, you are continuing to avoid a plot?
GS: All in
good time, Late Night Supermarket Man, all in good time.
LNSM: But when?
Will Grandpa Shelly print out the mission? Will there ever be a plot? What happened to the crinkle cut fries? Find out next time on...
