monday june 1

today i walked up to the checkout counter at walmart, and was greeted with a "hey there," to which i replied, "good." obviously, i’d become so accustomed to a "hi, how are you today?" sort of greeting that i instinctively answered as if i’d been asked that, but the actual exchange immediately made me start laughing — it sounded as if i’d walked up to the counter and announced that, yes, everything here was satisfactory and to my liking.
