Sensory Overload

A raspberry caught me by surprise during lunch yesterday, hiding between a couple of leaves of lettuce in my sandwich. I’m not used to finding high-falutin raspberries in plebian turkey sandwiches, but there it was. The second surprise was my surprise about me being surprised, since I made the sandwich myself. The third surprise occurred during my walk after lunch, when I saw a dead bat with three wings lying on the sidewalk. The fourth surprise occurred when, upon closer observation, the dead bat turned out to be a rotting banana peel.

That was enough surprises for one day. Although it was only 3:00 in the afternoon, I went back to bed.
