I (unfortunately) work at walmart and she was looking for a brand we don't have at my store.
She said Swanson's broth was too salty, she didn't think the walmart brand would be worth it because it cost so little, and the third and most expensive brand was too pricy.
I asked if she could remember the name of her preferred brand so I could find a manager with a decent phone to look up the item/item number off the our website so we could see if it came in any of the new stock since we get a lot of new cooking products this time of year. She said one brand was Imagine broth and then spent a solid minute “hmm”ing and “ohh”ing while trying to think of the other brand name.
I almost started to hate her til she whipped out her sagely quote.
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
