However, this delay allowed the creature queueing behind me ample time to peruse my own shopping (seedy bread, brown rice, avocados, tiger prawns, organic chicken, spinach and milk) long enough to get a contemptuous running commentary going about "Prawns? Avocados? Oranic chicken? You would never catch ME spending good money on toss like that."
And it took all my self-restraint not to retort "Well you wouldn't catch me spending money on crack."
I could taste how satisfying those words would be, although I could also taste what it would feel to get punched in the face so I judged it wise to desist.
My unlived life is Adventurous and Bold. Oh Yis,Phear Me!
