Hungry

Hungry

No. It just stopped working. It does not keep things—it does not keep anything—cold anymore. The woman thought about her options as far as getting food went: The soup kitchen? No, she couldn’t eat a couple of sandwiches in one sitting and the soup wouldn’t last till the evening. What else? She tried hard to think of a solution, but that was impossible. Hungry. That’s how she felt. She thought about a time, a long time ago, when she stayed in a hotel room with a high ceiling and there was nowhere to keep food there either. She’d go to the supermarket twice a day, once at around noon and once just before it closed, to get something to eat. That supermarket was close by. In this new place, the walk to the nearest supermarket was on the long side. She had heard about people going to bed hungry. Now it was happening to her. Just like in a movie, she thought. No, it’s not a movie. It is even more real.
