Limonata is getting lots harder to find, dammit! What, do I have to @#%&*! move to Italy?

(This is a post about Limonata)

 

or, to use the newer can style in my art:

In the middle of last year when I mentioned There is no more Limonata at Trader Joe's and the fact that Trader Joe's had chosen to stop carrying San Pellegrino Limonata.

Anyway, the situation is getting worse again.

Larry's in Redmond has been out of it for several weeks now. And they have no word on when they will have more -- they are on the verge of taking the shelf space away, apparently.

I negotiated a temporary discount at Whole Foods while I look into a more permanent episodic discount at Costco or Sams or Whole Foods or somewhere.

If all else fails, I guess I'll have to move to Italy.

Anyone in Italia looking for someone who knows a lot about globalization and drinks Limonata like it was water except he enjoys it more? :-)

To Larry's, I say: FEH. Perhaps it is because I do so much with an operating system, but I need a much more reliable uptime....

Okay, this is a little too lemony for me.  My cohort (who actually bought it) finds it delicious, though.

I won't judge, I promise -- not everyone can handle the raw lemon power!
