the anti-warehouse store mentality

i went shopping today. there are many things to explore, lots of different spices and fruits and vegetables i am not used to seeing in a corner store. i found some tasty looking granola, liquid yogurt with tropical fruit mixed in, bananas, coffee, a mango, some dish soap. then i went to the paper goods section for some toilet paper. my conditioned instinct was to grab the biggest megashopper-sized extra-combo pack i could find. there was one large-sized pack, but as i reached for it i reminded myself that all the groceries had to fit in the new bike’s basket. i grabbed a single roll instead.
a kid on horseback just went by the house at a full gallop. the hooves on the gravel and stone road made a great sound. a minute or two later his buddy came sauntering along lazily, riding halfway sidesaddle and looking in no hurry to be anywhere.

    If you see any hot sauce on the shelves of the mercado called “Chilero,” check it out. It’s pretty tasty.
