just another piece of our environment — unnoticed
Still Life
Gail Boenning

I like candy canes. I keep a couple hanging off my monitor at work. They add color, and there is no way I am ever going to eat one of those stupid things. But! If I’m having a sugar crash, I can peel off the plastic wrap* and chomp one down quickly to get my blood sugar back up.

*Okay, actually it turned out that peeling the plastic off a candy cane is hard when your brain is sugar-deprived and stupid. Still, they’re pretty and last forever.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
