People Pay Attention

I step up to the cashier at the little convenience store with the only ripe avocado in North America, an onion, and hamburger buns.

"Oooooh," she says, looking over my items. "Buying something other than hardboiled eggs?"

Sure, this is my usual purchase at this place, as I buy them for breakfast on my way to work, but I'm so flummoxed that someone would recognize me and notice my habits that for a moment I'm at a loss for words, while Katie laughs at my astonished expression, saying, "She's sure got you pegged!"
