My [Non-Offensive] “Grocer and Writer” Pieces

These stories are pretty much an observation of what I see going on in the Post Modern world. After all, in the words of Oscar Wilde, “Art imitates life and life imitates art.”

What I had observed dates back to about 2006, but I didn’t begin writing these until June 30, 2014.

There were countless inspirations that caused me to write these stories, many of them occurring only on the subconscious level. I frequently find myself hearing a song, seeing a piece of artwork, visiting a certain place or a personal memory resurfaces and I find myself realizing that they all inspired these stories.

Without further ado, here they are:

The Prequel

A Meeting in the Park

A Telephone Conversation on Black Friday

A Date at The Riverwalk

Our Sunday

A God-Awful Job

Blissful Love Life

Christmas Eve-Our First Time

Christmas Day
