Losing My Zen IN The Grocery Store

He took up a lot of space for a skinny guy. Arms shooting out from his pits, grabbing this and that. Neck jutting left and right and all the time occupying the middle of the aisle. Being older and fatter, I paused my shopping cart, waited pretended I didn't want to shove his ass into the canned peas.

That must’ve taken some restraint. More than I would’ve had. A well planned bump With my cart into his butt….that’s what I’d have done. Nice lines, Eric.
