Orange Sherbet and Jessica Rabbit

by Don Pizarro

A Tibetan Buddhist monk stands in line at Auntie Anne's, and gets a pretzel and a coffee. He joins three other monks at a table in the mall food court, right in front of the Wendy's. Another monk has a frozen orange sherbet and is reading the back of what looks like a DVD copy of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? This just doesn't seem right. My face contorts into a Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot expression, and I start worrying about the dangers that consumerism, fast food, and Mrs. Rabbit could pose on their journey to enlightenment. Then I realize, maybe it's my enlightenment that I should be worried about.

Don Pizarro watched the first two sentences play out at the local mall the day after he got the notice for this contest. He took it as a sign.
