Day Twenty-Nine

-A man purchased Minions wrapping paper and a large Keurig. This is a deadly combination that can only result in a gift recipient whom I do not want to know.

-A woman brought back the cart that she had taken, claiming that it was too loud and that “Everyone will hear me coming.” In efforts to maintain the element of surprise, she chose another cart. This cart turned out to be even louder than the first, but I saw in her face that she was just going to accept her hand in life and move on.

-A couple came through with one toddler and twenty-five jack-o-lantern trick-or-treat buckets. This is going to be her most grandiose Halloween out of all two she has experienced thus far in life.

-As I was talking to her daughter, an elderly woman lunged at me with a stuffed dinosaur and a loud “BWAH.” This was the most terrifying and endearing attack I have been the target of at this job so far.

-A young boy picked up a Twix bar and threw it at a Hershey’s display once told to put it back. When asked to put it in the right place by his mother, he pretended to, but left it there unbeknownst to his mother. His sister, realizing his sins, returned the candy bar whence it came. These siblings perfectly embodied an angel and a devil on one’s shoulders and I would like to adopt them both.

-An elderly woman purchased twelve bras. I do not know whether she refuses to wear a bra more than once and goes through a new one every day or if she has a bra-oriented event coming up this week, but whatever comes her way, she is now ready.

-A woman told me to read the inside of the birthday card she was purchasing if I wanted a laugh. I expected some overused pun, but what I saw inside made me genuinely burst out laughing at my register. I am so appreciative of her for sharing a smile with me.

-I have never been so intrigued as when I heard the sentences, “If you see President Cowboy, tell him I’m coming. He is my cousin.” This woman leads an illustrious life the likes of which I can only hope to attain. 

-A four year-old spent the duration of his parents’ transaction singing one verse of the Despicable Me theme on loop. Judging by his parents’ reactions, this may have been taking place for the duration of the entire shopping trip.

-An ashtray by a trashcan in front of our store was on fire. It was not a lit cigarette left to smolder. It was a full-blown flame. Smoke was billowing out of it and the smell hung over the entire parking lot. I still do not know how it started. I only know it was put out with the help of several venti water cups.

-I heard a phone go off. The ringtone was Heathens by Twenty-One Pilots. I looked around to find the teen who was getting a phone call. It turned out that this phone belonged to a woman in her fifties with a wild eye and all of my respect.

-A two year-old in a onesie was removed from their cart and immediately began their great escape, running as fast as their stubby legs could take them towards the accessories section. The mother called after them. The toddler looked over their shoulder and kept eye contact as they continued to run. This plan has been in the making for a long time and will not be stopped. The father then stopped the child, but I could tell by their face that this would not be their last attempt. 


Ruby and Weiss make for great partners. I feel so because they are almost total opposites, but one makes up for what the other is lacking. A deadly combination

These two lovely pieces were drawn by the amazing kageuri. Lovely work
