"Now, our people know you. Noble and common, they respect you. And if you would just lead them to salads, they'd follow you. And so would I."
~ Nadine, as William Wallace, to Food Basics.
The grocery store was out of green peppers. And red peppers.
The grocery store had lettuce. It was brown.

I picked up a head of wilting iceberg.
I seriously contemplated hurling it across the store.
A fight to the death. Or to better produce.
"Every man dies; not every man really eats fresh veggies."
And then I put it back. With a little more force than was necessary.

Healthy eating is stressful.
