I Met Someone Special in the Ice Cream Aisle

I may never see her again, but the experience will stay with me

I pushed my cart through the aisles of Target, cautiously taking in the sights and sounds. The bright lights no longer ruined my visit; the loud music didn’t trigger a vestibular migraine. Scanning the shelves caused mild vertigo, but nothing I couldn’t manage.



We exclusively publish memoirs: The creative stories unpacked from the nostalgic hope chests of our lives.
