This is the start of my second week at the new job, and everything's going just swell; it's basically quiet and stress-free back there, and no one's trying to bother me. This is something that's hard to find, and I'm extremely grateful for it.
So, today I packed up orders, alongside Buntop, who talked the entire time. I have a hard time following all the stories she tells me about her life and family, and must admit that I have stopped trying. There's not going to be a quiz.
I do, however, remember what she had for breakfast this morning.
Acton: Little Debbie Coconut--what? Breakfast of champions!
Buntop: Well, I couldn't find no poptarts
Acton: Maybe someone beat you to them.
Buntop: No, I just can't find'em. My house is a wreck.
(I don't usually contribute this much to the conversation, but I was feeling energetic this morning.)
A lengthy description of just how much of a wreck her house is followed. Then, I heard about all of her shopping trips, and what a thrill it was to find packs of socks for just a dollar at the Dollar General, and a new babystroller for half price, which she admitted that she didn't absolutely need, and--I began to see how these first two topics tied in with each other.
I just wanted y'all to know that my life is still really exciting.
Though--ONE dollar for a pack of socks? That does sound good. I'll be back.
