The Grocery Store At Night Is A Happy Place

I was in the supermarket last night.

Usually I shop on weekday mornings.

However, last night I was in the supermarket around 10 PM.

I often notice young couples shopping together when I go the supermarket in the evening.

These couples are both straight and gay.  

They often seem happy.

I think maybe their autonomy and their relationships are both still relatively new, and that shopping together late in the evening is an affirmation of both the autonomy and the relationship.

My wife and I have been married 8 years and I am 40 years old.

But I’d like to think that our marriage still has the energy and happiness I see with the young grocery shoppers.
