Waiting for my Boars Head
I said something to the lady
waiting next to me.
She answered and
we were off and running,
discussing the merits of healthy eating.
“You are what you eat,” I said
To which she replied with soft eyes,
“Not really. My daughter has MS.”
From cold cuts to MS.
A quantum leap.
I wish I could
say it put my own little troubles
But it didn’t.
I just felt quietly sad for the daughter
whose life changed drastically at 29.
There was no life lesson.
It was just a one-time grocery store
An intersection of two lines
that will probably never cross again.
So why did it feel so good?
