    Text - On with the story. I visited a local convenience store to pick up a couple of items. It is a very small store, and there's no clear area to queue; just two narrow aisles in front of the counter, at right angles to each other.

    Text - Score hidden · 21 hours ago rde42 There's a story (almost certainly apocryphal) about a guy sitting in a cafe. There was an attractive woman sitting at a nearby table; she sneezed, and her prosthetic eye flew out. He had quick reactions, and grabbed it as it flew past.

One day he thought to ask her "What attracted you to me?", to whi
