… and then, just as i unlocked my car in the parking garage at whole foods, i noticed something strange and inexplicable. dwelling deep within the pockets of my black gore-tex parka were 2 thinkThin protein bars… one, a creamy peanut butter … the other, a brownie crunch. apparently, they had made it past the cashier and into my car without anyone’s notice. apparently, someone neglected to place them in the shopping cart. as far as i know, no one apprehended us. but i can hear the footsteps approaching.
i had a flicker of remorse, but was quickly reminded of the thousands of $$$ i had spent at WF on organic almonds, almonds, bananas, bananas and more bananas, gala and jonagold apples and cartons of goat milk yogurt over the past 15 or something years. like literally thousands. but this does little to soothe my conscious. but i am sure there will be other opportunities for forgiveness. maybe even tomorrow. maybe i’ve already been forgiven. maybe never.
otherwise, an oddly floaty day. i was of this earth, but not entirely part of it. except for being weighed down by those 2 fugitive protein bars. i could certainly tread more lightly.
