Samantha and Randall loved the first Thursday of every month when Sam’s mom did her Costco run. First, they’d tag along and feast on free samples of Vienna sausages and frozen cream puffs.

Then, after they’d gotten back to Sam’s place and unloaded the minivan, they’d build a sweet-ass fort out of the massive amounts of toilet paper that Sam’s mom always bought. Say what she would about her mother, Sam had to give her credit for always making sure the house was stocked with essentials.
