FOUND: Stop & Shoegaze

Found:  The Shoegazer is a well-known seltzerholic.  Having given up drinking soda, he now prefers the zero-calorie fizz of lemon and mandarin orange flavored seltzer water.  His favorite place to stock up on this refreshing treat – Stop & Shop, which carries a wide array of Polar, Adirondack and their house brand, recently known as Zazz but now simply labeled as Stop & Shop Brand.   One hot afternoon, The Shoegazer’s spidey sense told him to keep his eyes peering downward, and upon entering the store, spied what appeared to be money on the floor.  Upon further inspection, it was two folded $20 bills, totaling $40, sitting unattended on the floor of the store’s entryway.   This marks The Shoegazer’s largest monetary find since his discovery of a $100 bill in a parking lot back in the winter of 2003, and also the largest single find in the history of this blog.

Location: This pair of $20 bills was found on the floor just through the main entrance of the Stop & Shop supermarket in Somerville, MA.

Source:  Clearly someone decided to Stop & Shop, though unfortunately for them they did not Stop & Recover their lost money.  The Shoegazer hopes they carry a debit card, as the source had vacated the premises.

Destination:  Some $7 or so of this find went toward the purchase of two 12-packs of seltzer water, currently chilling in The Shoegazer’s fridge.  He would like to take this moment to rail against the proliferation of so-called “fridge packs” for sodas and canned beverages, as they don’t actually fit in The Shoegazer’s fridge and are far more cumbersome and harder to carry than a traditional 12-pack.  Besides the seltzer, The Shoegazer also purchased a $2 lottery ticket (which he won $2 on) and some sushi later that day.

Zazz cans. Sadly no longer available at Stop & Shop. They make fine flower vases as well as projectiles.
