I was in the coffee aisle today when an advertisement came over the grocery store speaker, and this recording, in a fake-happy voice, said something like, “It’s wine. Just drink it!” and I couldn’t stop myself from exclaiming, “What the fuck? Is that even allowed!?”

It felt good.

This whole piece is fantastic. ❤
