As we walk down little lanes and streets or drive down highways, we see many little shops. Some are actual brick and mortar (literally), some are carts and some are just a couple of poles with blue tarpaulin stretched between them. Some are crammed into busy commercial areas and some are in the middle of stretches of almost empty highways.
The one thing they all have in common are masses of streamers of foil packets of various things. I haven’t stopped to see what these various things might be but I am imagining from cursory glances that they are snacks of many sorts, perhaps lottery tickets, maybe single-pack shampoo, and, who knows, perhaps a strip or two of the “Mansource flavored condoms” that I saw advertised on the side of a building yesterday.
