I stopped in at my favorite antique shop yesterday and was greeted by Bud, the owner, who told me they had got a bunch of new bottles in! So I opened up the cabinet and began rifling through the typical array of semi-local and out of state pharms, slicks, coke bottles and junky '50s milks. It was only after a couple minutes when I looked up and noticed this nice clean pair of Sims tonics up on top - staring me in the face the whole time! To make a long story short, I walked out with 'em for the whopping grand total of $15! I even told Bud he was bein' too nice and to at least let me give him $15 each but he insisted. (I should add that I have known the owners since I was a kid, and every now and then I drop off a box of clean "non-keepers" from my digs) I still felt kinda guilty, so when I got home, I threw together a box of decent, mostly BIM embossed stuff and ran it back over to him.
Nice guy - and he didn't even know it was my birthday
