People are still shopping!
Just going through my old text messages and came across this one from Alice, my sister. I’ve been reluctant to delete it for some reason.

It was quite a relief to get that message, I can tell you. Quite insightful too. Despite all the chaos going on outside, these people were trapped in huge department store. What else were they going to do?
