Tale of the unexpected

19Jul10

Against my better judgement I approached the self service till to pay for my lunchtime sandwich.

“SOMETHING UNEXPECTED IN THE BAGGING AREA!” bellowed the machine. “SOMETHING UNEXPECTED IN THE BAGGING AREA!”

I looked around for something that I might not expect next to the carrier bags. What could it be? Perhaps it would be…

A penguin?

A mathematical proof?

Some granite?

Winston Churchill?

Two dozen dragon’s eggs?

An oilwell blowout preventer?

World peace?

A glistening turd?

A song?

Pieces of moon rock?

Shrapnel?

A newborn baby?

But all I could see was my sandwich. I had expected the unexpected to be more exceptional. I picked it up. The machine calmed down and the rest of the transaction proceeded as expected.
