What can YOU say in six sentences?
Someone has left a grocery list by the Kroger checkout register and though I feel like a thief and wouldn't know what to say if caught with it, I've tucked the list into my purse as if it is a sacred abbreviated journal. The small white sheet of paper is decorated with colorful letterhead at the top which reads: Volunteers Thanks For Sharing Your Heart; beside the words is a thin blue character holding up a large red heart full of yellow and blue stars. There are 23 items on the list written in black ballpoint pen, blue ballpoint pen, pencil and a black felt-tip pen. Two colored markers have also been tested on this sheet - one pink and one blue, and the felt-tip marker has been tested as well in seven loopy tornado swirls. The food and miscellaneous items listed are as follows: Chicken/spinach pasta, egg rolls (vegetarian), hand sanitizer, Parker onion rings, Light Mayo, 3x white index cards, soda crackers, radishes, french fries, Incredible Carpet Cleaner (red, white and blue bottle), coleslaw, milk, fruit wraps, toilet plunger, nibs, bird seed. The most interesting item on the list is a book title: The 36-Hour Day: A family Guide to Caring For Persons With Alzheimer Disease, Related Dementing Illnesses and Memory Loss In Later Life.
