She sat in her usual position, third from the right by the door.
In the draught, as usual.
The heater under her seat didn’t work. As usual.
Beep. Beep.
checkoutAnother day, another buck.
Reaching to her left, she scanned the goods, not bothering to see if they were condoms or fresh veg, though sometimes she smiled at the irony of cucumbers and bananas as they flew through her hands.
Beep. Beep.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
