People are in such a state right now. Went to Gelson’s this morning and the place was mad. Not a piece of chicken to be found. No TP either. Or cereal. A fancy Palisades woman in a mask with her basket piled with peanut butter and cans nearly plowed into me. It was as crowded as the day before Thanksgiving but with a decided air of panic everywhere.
I push my cart towards the longest checkout line I’ve ever seen at this market, and I wonder how little it takes to pierce the thin skin of civilization, and allow our fears to let chaos loose in the world.
