Awesome Town is getting a new gas station/mini mart. They’ve been building the place for the past few months, but put signs up last week and decorated the inside this week.
While walking past and peeking in the windows, I noticed something- three quarters of the shelves in the place are already filled with foodstuffs–chips, twinkies, candy, etc. They haven’t said when the place will open, but I’m guessing it’s another week or two away. This got me to thinking- that’s a lot of stuff that will be sitting around before people even get a chance to buy it. But somehow, because of all the chemicals contained within each item, they will still legally be able to sell it and people will be able to eat it.
I’ve had a lot of junk food in my day. But this got me thinking- with all this stuff in there sitting around, waiting to be bought and eaten, it can’t be that nutritious, or otherwise good for you.
So welcome to Awesome Town, new gas station. I may stop to fill up my car. But after seeing all that food sitting around, I probably won’t be stopping to fill myself up.
