You’re hungry. It’s in between meals, so there’s no need for four-course nourishment, but definitely a longing for some slight satisfaction.
You head to the pantry, excited to explore your options. Your eyes dart, first left to right, then top to bottom, in search of the answer to this sudden yearning. To your surprise (and delight), you discover a bag of your favorite potato chips, half eaten yet full enough to adequately sate your hunger.
You retrieve the bag, unhinge the bag clip and drive your hand in. The salt-kissed interior offers little resistance as you push on, grasping that first chip, ridges rising like Himalayan peaks to meet your fingertips. You bring the chip to your mouth, place it on your tongue, bite down and…
Blechhhh…..Your chip is stale.
