Yesterday, I went to the liquor store to buy some wine that was on sale.  I decided to buy a whole case because the price was right and the wine was good and it will keep (although not for long in my house -  ha ha).  So the woman at the register is looking up the price in the computer, makes the selection, totals my cost and it is over $270,000!  She stopped, looked at it a couple of times and we started laughing, because we knew that wasn't right.  The wine she was trying to look up was Louis Martini Cabernet.  She had selected Louis XIII de Rémy Martin (a cognac), which sells for over $2,000 a bottle...and I think she had selected more than 12 bottles.  So she voided the transaction and started over, but we all got a much-needed laugh on a Friday afternoon.
