Contentment

Contentment: (n) the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.

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, werefunny wisdom on words that begin with a C 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.
