Secret Potato Chip Dialogue over the Phone
Yesterday I received a phone call from an unknown individual. I said hello a couple of times but there was no response. It sounded like the person was eating from a bag of potato chips. There were other people in the back- ground, talking. They were having an argument. I listened until the money on my pre-paid account for my cell phone ran out.
The next day I went to a pay phone and called the person back. I didn’t say anything. The person didn’t hang up. I could hear a television in the back- ground and the person coughed a couple of times. The person listened to me eat from a bag of potato chips. I ate all the potato chips and then I turned the bag inside out and began licking the bag. I started chewing on the bag when there was nothing left to lick. I got a cut on my lip from the bag and my teeth let go of the bag. The person chuckled a bit at the television. I hung up and stepped outside of the telephone booth and sat on the curb and thought about bullfrogs.
