I was supposed to buy sandwiches for dinner tonight. But when I got to the good sandwich emporium, they were closed. So, using classic "Give me learning, sir, and you can keep your black bread1" logic, I went to Barnes & Noble next door and bought a book instead.
Then I went to the lower-quality sandwich empoirum for my dad and came home and had Cheerios.
