it was a dark rainy night and i went to the grocery store alone. mistake number one and two. I had no business being deh in de fuss place. was beer i been going and buy and maybe some fruits
I had to pass through the healthy people section to get to my stuff when an old lady roll up on me pointing an organic cacao powder pack at me. I held strict to my new york subway no eye contact rule and try to slide by but she cut me off and had me right up against the sparkling water. I stop and made eye contact. she was smiling big
Can you read this for me please, tell me if i can make hot chocolate with this.
I complied. Flipped the thing over, adjust my eyesight and start reading the how to make hot chocalate from cacao powder diligently.
Yes! Yes! THIS IS PERFECT FOR HOT CHOCLATE. Hot chocalate making instructions. Put two tablespoons in a cup of hot water blah blah blah
something seh look up. when i look up de lady smiling and not even listening to me. she just hovering close and blocking all my escape routes. damn! is trick i jus get trick wit the please read this for me move. I cant go down like this in grocery outlet. This cant be how it ends marco. This cant be how it ends
Then she said, don’t move!
It took three tries to get this lady to tek back she cacao powder. She move back lil bit and i move off the sparkling water shelf but i was kinda dazed like she hypnotise me. but my body fighting right cause we gotta get outta here. All the while she jus rapid fire talking and i lying and moving
