There are 2 ways to live your life.
Report from the Crack of Dawn Covid Grocery Shopping:
I observed that the produce man was a professional. He was stacking his head lettuce like Tetris. Like in some other life he had been a dryrock master mason. Fitting them by shape into a perfect, vertical wall without crushing or deforming any of them.
I reached in, and aimed at the keystone head, dead center, low in the stack. I hesitated. His eyebrows shot up and he shot me a look of dismay as I threatened his perfection, but he said nothing behind his mask.
"Just kidding! " I said. and chose the top row left. He laughed. I laughed.
Its hard to get a laugh in the grocery store these days.
I also observed a woman pound her fist on her horn at a red light that was, yes, taking a little long. She was first in line, and this wasn't going to speed up the light. God Bless Her.
Just for today.
I am going to stack my lettuce heads with patience and intention.
