This morning my family braved the snowy, blustery weather and headed to our local supermarket because we were out of lots of grocery staples like eggs, milk, and butter. Also on the list: soy sauce. I had used up all our our bottle when I made the Soy Sauce Glazed Salmon I blogged about the other night.
Besides the weather, it was a pretty routine shopping trip. I was picking up a few of the last things on our list while my husband headed to the checkout with the kids. It was pretty quiet in the store (mostly because all the sane people stayed home instead of shopping during a blizzard) and then I heard “Spill on lane 4” over the store’s intercom. I thought nothing of it, but when I went to find my family at the checkout lane I saw my son standing over a big puddle of soy sauce on the floor. He was actually laughing about it; but my daughter was mortified (and pretty embarrassed) over what her little brother had done.
While I was paying for our groceries I said to her, “I bet this isn’t the first time this has happened here.“ The cashier chimed in and said, “It happens ALL the time. Usually not soy sauce, usually it’s pickles that get dropped on the floor. Then I get to smell it all afternoon!”
