Last night, I was checking out at Trader Joe's, and I saw that Johnny Depp was bagging in the aisle all the way to the left. So that's why all the women are trying to get to that aisle!, I realized. I asked Mr. Depp why he was working at Trader Joe's. He said, "I can come and go, and no one tells me what to do. There's no expectation. It's fun." I said, "But don't you have to work a regular shift?" The manager was suddenly next to Johnny (but he'd been there the whole time, too, in the way of dreams). The manager said, as he wrote on his clipboard, "This is Johnny Depp. He can come and go whenever he wants to."
Johnny Depp and the manager were both wearing blue shirts.
I was going to ask another question, but my alarm sounded. Damn the alarm.
