So there's this store near me named Cecil's, it's like kinda near the boardwalk. Next to those pop-up shops with the really lame T-shirt designs. I always walked past it but I never actually stepped inside. So one day I was like, okay, I really want to know what they even sell here. Who and where is Cecil. What is he hiding.

I went inside and I didn't see anyone named Cecil, but idk for sure since I didn't ask everyone. But you'd think it would be the guy at the register most of all. You've eluded me today, Cecil, but not forever. One of these days I'm gonna come back to Cecil's and I will meet Cecil and I will be filled with either immense anger or slightly less immense anger. Depends on how long it takes really.

Anyways so what do they SELL at Cecil's. Like seriously. I wanted to know. I went between the shelves but all they had were batteries. Not even anything good either, pretty low voltage. They also sold art supplies but I don't know why I would want to buy those from Cecil's instead of, you know, an actual art supply dealer? Nobody on the boardwalk needs batteries and art supplies. Cecil really needs to get his priorities in order.

And that ended a long-standing mystery for me. I finally know what they sell at Cecil's. It was disappointing, and I didn't even see Cecil, but I might someday if I keep coming back. It's like they say, you'll never know if you don't go.
