The tape has been cut. The mayor has let crowds of tiny white men swim into the formerly closed building. The building was opened before overseers of its construction had planned, even approved of. Business seemed to be booming, all these men trampling one another to get at the precious items of the store. For one reason or another, most rejected the product. Some found it too expensive, some got lost in the labyrinth of shelves and whatnot, I even heard that some were trampled on the way in. But one man out of all of them, millions of them, found what he was looking for, paid, and checked out. This purchase would be enough to keep profit swelling at the seems for the next nine months.

It is time to tell my boyfriend that I forgot to take my birth control.
