at the strangest times
Daddy, you know that big dog-food bag you gave me full of potatoes from the garden? We’re still eating on them. I just filled up my colander with them, washed them, and sat them to the side to dry. When I turned off the water, there was some Alabama in the bottom of my sink. I scraped it up and smeared it around with my hands, and I thought about where to put it before I carried on with cooking dinner. When I threw it in the trash, I was just cleaning up, but it still hurt my feelings a little bit.
