Scene: Mike D’s cubical
I reach into my epic lunch bag and withdraw a can of cheap pineapple. I actually enjoy the cheap Farm Flavor variety more than the expensive name brands like Dole as it seems a little less acidic. The only downside to these cans is that they don’t have a pop top. But like a good
fatperson engineer, I plan ahead for such problems and keep a can opener in my desk drawer.
I open my desk drawer and withdraw the can opener. I place it against the edge of the can.
The can opener lets out a quiet whine as I turned the handle:
“eeeeerng… eeeeerng… eeeeerng…”
As I complete my journey around the circumference of the can, Sander asks loudly from the adjacent cubical
“You have pineapple over there?”
Never underestimate the ears of the hungry.
