supermarket
andrea acting the fool
looking the fool
playing the fool
wearing his old shirt
and a pair of ragged jeans

turning the corner and
running into him with her
dangling on his arm, with her boobs
hanging, jiggling out of the top of her shirt
muttering surprised hellos

if this were a movie,
glimpses of happier times
would flash across the screen
lingering over extra tender moments of I love youís
speeding up past the end to where we are now

standing in the supermarket
sharing an awkward moment

I see his eyes pass over the shirt
and I inwardly cringe
now he thinks Iím not over him
dangling, struggling to get past it
but all I really did was unconsciously
put on the first shirt I grabbed out of
the closet, I mean, itís a Saturday night

MollyGoLightly Sometimes people tell me about how they cry in the grocery store. Not just a few people. Lots of people. Apparently these is a place where none-too-pleasing things come together. 000522

Brad I watched a movie recently in which a woman cried in a grocery store, then some guy made her "feel better" by taking her out getting drunk and sleeping with her. He didn't tell his wife until later. 000522

emily i just watched that movie too--that whole story line bugged me...i liked that guy's character in the movie up until that point because then he just became an asshole...typical 000523

WoNDERGIRL jazzy elevator music plays over the supermarket intercom, and i wonder, just for a second, if it's meant to make me wander away from my purpose and into your arms (because that's where i am, you know) 000527

Brad I fell in love today in the supermarket. I fall in love a lot. I fall in love too easily. She was checking my groceries. So very sweet and nice... some people just exude a vibe of warmth and sweetness. 000530

Marjorie My father just went grocery shopping. Apparently he bought $80 worth of groceries, but saved $40 with coupons. He likes grocery shopping.
He says it helps him get his mind off everything that goes on around here.
I can't say that I blame him.
And I don't.
