I went back to get another grilled hamburger only to discover that they were all gone.
Disappointed, angry, frustrated, feeling cheated, I was prepared to walk away, when I noticed, underneath an exaggerated lettuce leaf, were two jumbo shrimp, hiding to protect themselves from unworthy nabbers (who were not me).
I procured them—and thanked them for their diligent preparation and clever disguise.
I strolled back to my seat to watch more of the football game. The shrimpers were not a grilled hamburger, but…
They weren’t nothing.
I took a deep breath. I smiled.
I had achieved contentment.
