"Shoppers, please be advised that the store closes in 10 minutes. Please take your purchases to the checkouts."

Had it been this long? My journey through the aisles of Coles? I'd come in at midday and stumbled upon the straw-haired deli goddess after a disappointment in the bakery section had left me hollow and bereft of almond fingers.

My trolley was only half full, of what I don't know. All I know is that it couldn't provide the sustenance that Caprice...

A Crisis of Courage

She's my muse, my raison d'etre!

If only I could tell her between orders of sliced cheese and pickled eggplant.

*Coles is an Australian supermarket.

Woe! I'm in love!

The girl at the Coles deli counter is my soul mate! I went in for some sandwich ham and she stole my heart.

The way she sliced, the way she placed it on the butcher paper and weighed it. She knew the PLU by heart and her form with the sticker printer was sublime.

I used to think that downs girls were weird, but now I couldn't imagine a world without her.

Oh woe is my...
