Sunday Night Shopper
Coon Rapids, Minnesota
It was a dark and rainy night.
Batty's the name.
Groceries are my game.
I like Sunday nights- no crowds, no noise, plenty of parking.
A man can think.
The important things in life.
When it is time to check out the cashiers are part-timers or students.
Sometimes we talk.
"Did you find everything you were looking for?"
"Yes, thank you. Pretty quiet night."
"It was busy earlier, most folks stay home Sunday nights, I guess."
"Yeah, it's not so crazy. That'll be $153.78."
"Yeah, not so crazy. I like it."
