This Is The Way The World Ends, Not With A Bang But A Sneeze

People are really kind of gross. I was getting some groceries when I saw this woman stop in the aisle, put her basket down with an AH- AH- AH... and then bend over and CHOOOOO all over the floor. Twice. Then she just picked her basket up and went on her way.

With the fluorescent lights bright on the nice, clean shiny floor, I could see a million little wet swine flu-ish globules now coating the floor, and blocking my path.

I had a brief thought of reaching for a tin of kidney beans and throwing it at her pandemic-loving head. Violent, but fair.

Loved the image of the tin of beans flying through the air....I'm still laughing. Yeah...whatever happened to manners and covering your mouth/nose when you sneeze? I felt the throwing of the beans appropriate.
