I lost my merguez. I was at Atwater Market in Montreal, and was buying a bunch of pates, duck fat, fancy dried sausages, and two kinds of merguez. But when I got back to the hotel and unpacked, there was no merguez! I have no idea what happened to it, or if I even really bought it. I rested my stuff in one of the display coolers for a minute, and I might have forgotten to pick it back up. And I didn't get a receipt, so I can't check until it shows up on my credit card! (It hasn't, yet. I already checked)

Would it be worth calling the store?

I left my cute little Bluetooth speaker in my hotel. Not worth asking them if they found it. I am trying to remember where I bought it. Checked out a couple of likely stores. Then I thought, maybe I can find it on Amazon.

After some searching I remembered I bought it on Amazon, and just had to click on my orders and buy it again.

This could also go in the thread about I am so old I am hopeless.

By the time I realized I didn't have it, I wouldn't have been able to go back. Next time I will check my stuff more carefully before I leave the store! (At least I remembered to go back and get somw duck fat). I found the charge on my credit card, and I don't seem to have paid for it. At least I left it in a cooler, and not on a counter somewhere!

I'm still a little disappointed, though. I was going to make chicken and merguez empanadas. I haven't had them in almost 10 years!

Maybe it's the weather. It's sucking out our short-term memories. Yeah, that's it!

Packed the rose harissa I bought at Ottolenghi into the suitcase that was coming on to the plane as opposed to the one we checked. You can imagine what got pulled to be hand checked at security. It didn't occur to me that it would be considered "liquid". Needless to say, it was tossed. I was so annoyed I had to console myself by buying a bottle of gin and a bottle of single malt at Duty Free.

I managed to restrain myself and keep them sealed as instructed.

I should add that they sell Rose Harissa at Kalustyan for about $14.50 a jar. It cost me something like 4.50UK, which is about $5.60.

Falls under the same category as the quark I tried to bring on an SF-NYC flight.
