A group of friends were planning on having a party, and it was up to the lucky friend determined by rock, paper, scissors to have it hosted at his place.
He was also tasked with providing the snacks.
At the grocery store he decided to go all out; as it was his house, on his dime, and certainly wanted to enjoy the movie and have a good time with his friends.
He was planning to buy pizza, chicken tenders, soda, beer, potato chips, french fries, and ice cream, but there was one item that he wanted to get, but could not find.
He had a taste for cookies but when he got to the aisle he could not find his favorite type, but maybe it was only a matter of it not being in this aisle, so he endeavored to search for it around the store.
But it was to no avail, since the grocery store did not have his brand; so of course, he went elsewhere; eventually exhausting all of the grocery stores in the area…
...to no avail.
So in his disgust, he came back home with nothing.
