How assuming!

Armando Garmando was on a diet, but he saw a strategically placed Hello Chocolate Bar in the counter area of 7-11, so he grabbed a couple and wolfed them down in two minutes. The managing personnel in these stores really know the psyche of the consumers. I’ve recently read the short novel Convenience Store Woman, written by Sayaka Murata, a former clerk in a Japanese convenience store, and we see how hearing the opening and closing of the fridge doors can already signal to the employees the consumer’s behavior. Although I’m not particularly sure about the wisdom of displaying all the colorful condoms and lubricants in the counter area. Prudish people preparing to fuck might feel too conscious that the other people behind him in the queue are judging his preference for studded, ribbed condoms, although now that everyone’s unrecognizable anyway with the mask and all who cares.

A few weeks ago after buying a couple of books in Fully Booked I saw this small Peanuts 2022 Calendar in the counter area, so I bought it as well. How optimistic, how naive of me, to assume that I’ll still be alive by 2022!
