ran out to get lemons last night. came back with hummus &sponges too. (sale!). looking to chat, i strike up a conversation with the lady cashing me out. she's gotta be like 60.
when do you get off?!
soon.. she trails off to then say, she's worked weekends her whole life!! (bummer)
(gently) must not hate it too bad if you still work the weekends..
the truth: a bitter pill to swallow. if only humans could function at more than about 51% of their capacity. maybe we could all have the courage to live out our dreams.
