thirsty camel

what are the rules about "double dipping" at costco?
sean says you can go back as many times as you want.
i think you can only go the once.
plus, there are always plenty of booths to peruse for a full snack, often a lunch, and sometimes a dinner.
what do you think?
...
i've been feeling like a thirsty camel the past two days.
like i've been walking in the desert for 3 years without water.
just using what was in my humps.
and now i'm almost at the oasis.
i can feel the cold water.
dreaming of drinking it.
licking my lips.
giddy with excitement about how it's going to feel.
but have you ever had the flu and given in to your thirst before your stomach is ready?
i have.
it's not pretty.
so when we get to the oasis in the next month,
i think it's going to take all of my will not to plunge my head in and start guzzling.
b/c mercy, it's not fun when you drink too much too soon.

So, so true.

The costco sample lunch is the best, but isn't it? Glad you've reached your oasis- enjoy it slowly!

Drinking soda on an empty (and extremely hungry) tummy is painful, too.
