The best avocado was at the bottom of the avocado pile but I grabbed it anyway. I was visibly relieved the pile did not collapse. My luck continued as I went to the carrots section and bags of tiny carrots were on sale 2 for 1. An unknown woman in a hard hat said: “Strange you do not worry about an ambiguous pile collapsing when you take items from its middle.” “Like how Albert Speer worried about the Jews?” I shot back. By Arbor Day the best sales had shifted to fancy meats. State law prohibits making piles of meat but I wonder what I would do if it didn’t.
