A story

The other day I went to the drugstore.  While I was waiting in line at the register the lady in front of me was debating out loud with herself whether to get the package of pudding that was all chocolate flavour or half chocolate and vanilla.  She chose all chocolate because apparently her granddaughter likes it best.  The lady behind me had breath that was heavy with the smell of alcohol.  She liked to roll her eyes at how slow the line was moving.  Meanwhile I was buying a 24 pack of earplugs.  They were on sale.  It struck me that the mundanities of life can have a peculiar edge.

Then I went home and ate lettuce and peas cooked in butter.  The slight bitterness of the lettuce created harmonious balance with the sweetness of the peas.

The end.
