Ever wonder if the amazon.com pickers scratch their heads about the weird combinations some orders contain?
A mortar and pestle.
A dog leash.
The new Adele CD.
Can you guess which items took me to amazon.com in the first place, and which two items were the add-ons to hit the $25 free shipping threshold?
The Adele CD was my first item. Then I figured I'd wanted a mortar & pestle for a long time, so why not get one? Oh, and then I remember that I'd slammed the dog leash in the car door, breaking the latch that affixes to her collar.
Of course, had I gone to the music store the CD was about $14. Sure, it was "cheaper" online... if you ignore the extemporaneous items! But what fun is that?
