Michigan, first of all, especially eastern Michigan, has a very large Polish-American population. My mother asked me to get some Kiszka for her (Polish blood sausage) at the local meat market near where I live since they don't carry it down by her. So I stop at the meat market and they are all sold out of kiszka. I asked the woman at the meat counter if they had any kiszka in the back. She said no, they were all out and the kiszka shipment isn't until Tuesday. So I called my mom and told her that the kiszka would come in on Tues and I'll pick it up Thursday on our way down for Xmas. So, I just find it humorous that a store is completely OUT of Polish blood sausage, and not only that, the store employees know exactly when the kiszka will be restocked. If I ask about phyllo at the grcocery store, people look at me like I've grown 2 heads. But the kiszka, the meat market people know exactly what day it will arrive. I know this isn't very blatant humor but I thought other Polish-Americans would get a kick out of this. BTW, the grocery store also runs out of creamed herring the day before Christmas Eve, so we always have to buy it ahead of time!
