THE PEOPLE WHO STARE AT WHEAT BREAD

We will have ice today.  Glenn went to The Pig to participate in the bread and milk ritual just to experience a true southern impulse.

He came away from it just as “other” as ever.  There was a knot of people around the bread section, which shares a wall with the restaurant, with the entry just beside.

There was a gaping hole in the bread inventory.  No white.  People were milling around, checking, rechecking, making sure.  Not sure what to do about this discovery, they hovered.  A cook came through the door of the restaurant to get more white bread for the customers.  She went back to the kitchen with nothing.

Glenn plucked a loaf of Martian bread, commenting to the crowd that it was healthier anyway, and left the group still trying to make a dollar out of 99 cents.

  1. My experience at WalMart is that some people stare at everything. I suspect they are waiting for their brain to bring together all the visual information of attractive packaging. Once it has done that the hand hesitantly reaches for the product…often to reject it later and leave a loaf of bread in the ice cream section or a can of fishing worms in the produce dept.
