Turn Your Love Around

George Benson wafted from the speaker of the small grocery store.
“Vegetables? That’s all you have?”
“Yep. We won’t be receiving out other groceries for a week at least.”
Brian’s mouth dropped.
“You’ve never been short before. What gives?”
The grocer took in a nervous breath.
“It’s not us. It’s the distributor. Shut down because of that nasty virus everyone’s talking about.”
“The company has no other way to get supplies?”
“Nope. Once we run out here, we shut down until we get our shipments.”
Brian turned his eyes down.
“Thanks, Charlie,” he concluded, ready to pay for his vegetables.
