5: staring eyes/ whining cries
24 hr grocery shopping has been a boon for me. My daughter and I can do our shopping at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning safe in the knowledge that most prying eyes are tucked up in bed asleep. No more will Haley have to cry when people mock her tentacles and penchant for raw fish, or question her parentage. No longer do I have to hold in my anger when really I just want to squirt the little bastards with black ink and watch them drown.
It’s difficult being a giant squid in a post steampunk world, so I’m thankful for humanity’s endless greed for money via eternal shopping.
