Out Today: Supermarket Illusions

I’m at the point right now that when I think about how much I have to do, my mind just goes black and there’s just a steady tone in my ears. That said, I needed to find some moment to sneak out and go to the grocery store so I can feed my incessant snack craving while writing about evil as privation of the good. (Hint: I don’t agree with this thesis, I just don’t know how NOT to agree with it.) SO: I skipped church and went to the store this morning.

Culturally, I had forgotten that I’m a bit off the beaten track, because I was shocked to find that the supermarket was PACKED on Sunday morning. I really thought that I was going to be running through the aisles, happy and alone. Not so much. Guess church attendance really is down, no matter what I think.

In other news, there were BIRDS in the supermarket!! Not one, but multiple sparrows were flying around the place over by frozen foods. I got stopped by an old friend (and baby!!), and out of the corner of my eye I kept seeing movement. Suddenly, one got really brave and flew low to land on a sign by the D+D. I found this hilarious and wonderful and made the experience in the store much more pleasant. Next: petting zoo by the veggies?
