I Want My Junior Mints!

Conversation with El Cap at Pasadena Produce when I open my wallet to pay for bananas and such and a Junior Mint fell out. For a moment, we both gazed down at the Junior Mint on the floor between our feet.

El Cap: (very quietly) What the hell was that?

Me: Er, that was a Junior Mint. I had some at the movie last night, and I put the box in my purse. I had that and M&Ms. I guess one got away.

El Cap: And you were worried about whether the apples are organic?

I write. I take pictures. I love my dog. I love Florida. My 2016 book, 'Backroads of Paradise' did really well for the publisher and now I feel a ridiculous amount of pressure to finish the second book.
