Friday night, 7:30 pm (Publix Supermarket, Atlanta, Georgia) - Moms and dads, dragging their kids up and down the aisles as they stock up for the weekend. Young couples buying beer and wine, last-minute ingredients for dinner, cards, and flowers. Teenagers stocking up on Halloween supplies.
Your humble narrator, buying cat food and kitty litter, feeling like the biggest loser in the city.
Funny, the narratives we tell ourselves.
