Scenes from Real Life, II; a.k.a. Perspective

Today's dialogues with myself, a drama in three acts:

Act I: Outside a filling station, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest
"Forty dollars! For a single tank of gas? *&%$!!"

Act II: At the supermarket, several hours later, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest
"One-hundred thirty dollars? For groceries? Are you kidding me?!?"

Act III: Driving through a fairly affluent suburb, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, 20 minutes later
"What are all those people lining up for? Outside that Church? And most of them are children?"

Coda: Oh; I get it. The Wednesday night food bank.
