The Best Idea Ever.

A drive in grocery store! Imagine it.

You have a little one sleeping in the backseat. You are in danger of missing the latest episode of The Office. But you have nothing to eat in your house- you desperately need groceries (and a bag of Reese's Pieces).

What do you do? Call the grocery store and place an order. By the time you get to the store, your order is waiting for you at the drive in check out window. Then two hot burly men with abs of steel load your groceries into your car. Hey, is Hot Burly Man #2 for sale as well? How about for rent? My subaru has a huge trunk/hatchback...

Anyway, problem solved! I didn't have to get out my car, wake up my baby, or miss The Office.

Why am I the first person to think of this? Nowadays, stores will deliver for an extra $10. But if I'm already running errands, why not bypass that fee?

Sometimes I wonder how so much genious could exist in one person.

I can't tell you how many times I have thought of this - sans the burly men. But sometimes you have to pick up something but with your kid asleep in the car seat, its impossible.

I'm all for this idea.

This actually exists. Somewhere, I swear to you, I saw this. They had a sliding glass door, and you pulled up into the loading area - looked like a car port - and the guy brought the groceries out to your car and loaded them into the back for you.

Downside was, it was small little place with very little to choose from. But I bet they carried Reese's Pieces.
