Mostly True Memoirs
IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG AND REGRETFUL DAY
I needed some change to tip my dog groomer.
I stopped at the QT on the corner to break a 20.
I was going to buy a pack of gum.
But then I saw the corn nuts.
I haven’t had corn nuts in years.
Oh, I used to love corn nuts.
I remembered a wonderful, tasty indulgence.
However, it soon became apparent that corn nuts haven’t aged well.
Or perhaps it’s me that hasn’t aged well.
I didn’t make this unfortunate discovery until I’d finished the entire lot.
It’s going to be a long and regretful day.
But at least I’ve got some cash to tip the groomer.
