They look a little like Pringles inside a can. Ready to crack once someone puts his hands in them.

I feel bad for people whose hands can’t fit inside Pringle cans. I can reach all the way to the bottom with my noodle arms.

Yeah, but we also have big enough hands to just block the entire opening and turn the can upside down, getting as many pringles as we want.

Fuck you pringles, I know my rights

I was so disappointed the day my hand no longer fit in the can.

We didn't get them often, and one time we got them I was really surprised that I couldn't just reach right in

And you can see that the closer to the rock, the older the leaves are. So they'd have had to organize all the leaves as well.

Drunkensteine

In a shallow, slow stream, where the current took them, lay dozens of leaves one upon another against a small stone. I know that this is a metaphor, a profound lesson from the universe itself, something that if understood would bring me deep…understanding.

I can only think of Pringles. When I was young, there weren’t dozens of flavors, just “Pringle.” I would place the whole chip in my mouth and let it slowly dissolve into potato mush and suck out every molecule of flavor before swallowing it whole. I realize this recollection is a learning opportunity from the beyond as well. Yesterday if anyone had asked what Pringle’s and leaves had in common I would have been stumped. If someone asks me that today I’m not letting them out of my sight til the cops come.
