Dinner Rolls

Building on yesterday’s remarks, another scene. Another ride around the store. Another checkout line discard. Where are the King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls in Canton’s Super Walmart?, you wonder. I don’t know about the rest of them, but you’ll find one package at register fifteen, just below the gift cards.


  1. Tumblr? What is Tumblr? Some kind of blog mill?

    I’m just extending the “Things” category and doing a bit of fly-by photo-documentary work while waiting around in life’s eternal checkout line.

    Also celebrating eight years at Earth Wide Moth tomorrow. Same host. Same domain. Same old left-behind Movable Type for eight years. Is. has told me she thinks this warrants celebratory chocolate chip pumpkin muffins.

  2. I’ve never tried them, Clancy. But I do like the image of a punitive putback: “One more word out of you, and we’re not going to buy the King’s Hawaiian rolls. In fact, we’re leaving them right here!”

    For a minute, I was thinking they could’ve fallen off when a cart heaped high with King’s Hawaiian rolls passed through. What’s one package when you’re buying 40?

  3. The punitive outback is a frequent occurrence on grocery trips with my kids — the threat of it, anyway. They’re pretty good about shaping up when their goodies are at stake.
