I was at Costco with dad, and he was paying for the parking
When a stranger ambled by, wondering aloud,
Boxes? What’s up with these boxes? Does Target only have boxes too?
Without transition, he directed the question at me (apparently),
Don’t they give you bags at Target?
Poor man, guess he’ll never know!
‘Cause I just stood and stared in silence, guarding my cart, wondering why on earth he was talking to me
And reflexively refused to converse with this think-alouder.
I was woozy and just wanted to eat my pizza.
How dare you ask me whether they have bags at Target.
