Nice. Only 50 minutes, not bad and you got the package.
If it was a major hub the line could be a mile long so trying to pull a package off the line isn't that easy. Here it's a little different.
I know the feeling and had done the same myself at USPS and actually went to the back with them to find the truck.
The need for the instant gratification is so powerful but in hindsight for me it wasn't really that important, relatively speaking and not their fault I wasn't home to sign it. Now I just request no signature please.
Now tell us how you enjoy it!
Bourbon-ish, Balcones Texas Single Malt.
Liking it so far, now comes the "sample with a grilled steak" challenge later this weekend.
I don't often get excited in a store.
today, I got very excited!
from the outside, it didn't look like much, and walking in, I didn't have high hopes.
Saw the Woodford four wood at the end of the shelve, had some of the rye two pack. Nice, but not my cup of tea.
JPS 21-overpriced, and 18-ok priced, but have enough. No 17,did look through the pile. Also had a EW23- too much for me.
look down, EC18, good price, getting excited, I really like this bottle.
Look up, FR Small Batch 2011, woohoo!!!! Look, but no 2012 in row.
then I glance my head just slickly to the right, multiple colors of PHC looking at me!!!!!! Blended, cognac, wheat, and my ultimate fave, the golden. Raging, woohoo excited!!!!!!!
After much debate, and hand wringing, the golden, of course, the wheat, duh, and two FR come home with me.
Heart racing excitement. Stunning day.
get back, and tell wife about purchase, she ask's, are you sure that's all, there isn't anything else???
Oh yah, she's a keeper!!!
"Life is life and fun is fun, but it's all so quiet when the goldfish die."
Good day indeed! Very nice.

Six good ones for a single maybe maybe not is always the right choice.
I ended up paying $26.99 a bottle which is about $3 more than I remember paying the last time at the same store. I will be curious as to whether they will be able to restock once they sell the remaining bottles. I left two.
I already have an open bottle so I opted for VOB BIB tonight.
