I used to get a "yeah, right lady, get a better story" look from the guy at the Liquor store. When I owned my former horse Red, he had anhydrosis. I was told to give him a beer...he didn't like Budweiser and then I was told give him a Guinness Beer. So I trotted myself to the liquor store and asked if I could buy one. Heck, those things are expensive and if he didn't like them I didn't want to be stuck with them (I don't drink!!!). He said No....but had a 4 pack. I explained they were for my horse -
and he looked at me a little funny. Got up to the counter and remembered I need something else. I said "I need Everclear please - for my cakes".
I explained that I was a cake decorator and used the Everclear to paint on cakes or clean the powdered sugar off of them.
Ahahahahahahhaha he looked at me like I was nuts. They still do - especially when I insist on a receipt for taxes!!!
