Well, it finally happened. Trader Joe's opened in Albuquerque. Today was the big day, so I stupidly went, because I wanted very badly to get this salsa that OJ and Summer had from the TJ's in Santa Fe.
So, I made my way over to the eastside, all for this wonderful salsa. On the way, as I'm sitting at the stop light at Wyoming and Paseo del Norte, I heard a car honk next to me. I looked over, and the cute little old man waved at me to roll down my window. When I did, he asked me, "Do you know where that new store is--Trader Joe's?" I said, "I'm actually going there myself, follow me!"
That should have clued me in to the amount of people that were going to be there. It was completely packed! People were parking their cars in the Raley's parking lot across the street, and in the bank parking lot next door, and all down the sides of the road.
I took a chance, and went into the TJ's parking lot, and a car pulled out just in time for me to take the spot. It was meant to be!
So I found my delicious salsa and some other things, like avocados, organic cereal, Cliff bars. Waited in line for about 30 minutes, then paid for all my great finds.
I should've waited about a week or so, but I really wanted that salsa!
