Essence! Take their essence!
I witnessed, perhaps, the most hilarious checkout ever yesterday.
A male, mid-thirties married was buying a large amount of baby items. Packages of diapers, ointment (ew. That’s a bad word. Almost as bad as moist and panties. Ehhhhh), baby powder, baby oil, baby food…
Anyhow. Towards the end of the belt sat a box of condoms.
The man had learned his lesson. Ah, hilariousness.
You can learn a lot about a person by examining what they are buying. It’s kind of interesting, I must say. I’m pretty happy I get to interact with other people, though. Weird, I know. But I think the constant human interaction is helping my shyness, and tendency to avoid people.
I’m also learning a lot about people. Most of the folks I work with are in a situation like myself and can’t find work anywhere else. A lot of the customers I meet are in a similar place, too.
Learning new things, and understanding others could help my writing, me thinks.
Anyhow, I’m off to start a new project. Well, I’m not really leaving, but opening a word document to try a bit of fiction writing. I need to increase my creativeness. I don’t want any of you to see that disaster, though.
