Because, I'd never have hot dog hands unless they were Italian Hot Dogs ~ for the uninitiated (or uncorrupted depending on how you look at it) an Italian Hot Dog consists of usually two dogs (preferably skin-on Sabrett's) that are laid to rest in the billowing depths of great Italian bread and covered over with sauteed red and green bell peppers and onions along with pan fried potatoes and topped off with mustard and ketchup... Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese sprinkled sparingly on top is optional. *DROOL* For Italian Hot Dogs, I'd gladly have hot dog hands... and most likely, chest pains.
But, just because I love them and am all interested doesn't mean I need to impose my love and interest on others.
I can tell you that it's far cheaper and easier to get Taylor Pork Roll delivered to Texas than it is to get Polly-O cheese, but I actually found a place that will deliver it outside the New York, New Jersey area... of course this was after 4 hours of searching all over the damn internet and grocery services and by the time I found it my exhaustion overruled my enthusiasm, probably because it was close to 5 am... But I did find it... The ONLY One on the entirety of the vast, vast internet that will send me my beloved Polly-O. Still can't find hubby's Cain's Tea though... at least not for delivery to us, which, let's face it, is all that matters to me when I'm partaking in consumerism.
You can find these things, but not for delivery to you in whatever area you're in. Simply because these companies are in big cities, I, in my countryside existence, am not worthy of receiving the best things the food industry has to offer. Cause I don't battle double-digit crime rates and a thirty-mile-three-hour-commute 5 days a week, I don't deserve to partake in the culinary delights of the big city folk. Is that what these places really think? I mean, come on!... oneOneONE grocer on the entire World Wide Web that will ship me a brand of cheese that is available in any and every grocery store in NJ? Conspiracy or web-piracy?
And, the tea issue is even worse! Wal-mart sells Cain's Tea, but only in select stores, and apparently none of those stores are in a 100 mile radius of anyone in my personal phone book. I can get moose meat from Alaska in three days, but here in the Houston area, I can't get Cain's tea from Oklahoma. Supposedly, it's distributed by Sara Lee food service, but they don't even list it on their website. It's a conspiracy... and web piracy, because when you do finally find someone that can get you what you want wherever you are, you'll pay damn near anything to get it. OK,it's probably not a full blown conspiracy, or outright piracy, but it's gotta be an April Fools at least.
At this point, I'm not sure I'm emotionally strong enough to investigate the availability of cannolis.
Note to self: Next time eat before posting.
