A snippet of real life

Shoppers looking for deals packed the discount store. Like bees to pollen, they were drawn to the books section.  

I had stopped to look for some toddler Bibles and to pick up a few gift bags. As usual, I left with a lot more.

While standing in line to pay for my bargains, a girl walked in. She was thin and her long brown hair was parted on the left side and pulled back.

My 20-something cashier said something to her. I don’t remember what he said; I only remember her reply.  

“I got married today.”

It was around 2 in the afternoon. She had gotten married that morning and was at work a few hours later.

Now that's real life.
