I’m at Trader Joe’s buying groceries for the week, next to the sample counter: cornbread mix with corn chile salsa. One of the employees talking to an older woman suddenly drops his voice as if the person they’re talking about just walked in the room. They both turn and look at me as I take another sample cup of cornbread, pop it into my mouth like a Jell-O shot.
