Some Kind of Change

I went into the chocolate store. I said, “Do you have anything without chocolate?”

The clerk looked around. She said, “Nope.”

I said, “Okay.”

I left. I walked down the sidewalk to my car. I thought, “I can’t believe I drove from Chicago to Minnesota for something that was so obviously wrong.” The absurdity made me laugh. I had tears coming from my eyes. My body shook. For the first time in months I relaxed.

I went back into the store and bought a truffle.
