36 year old Keiko Furukura gets her self-identity from none of the usual places; sister, friend, mother, wife, etc. Instead, she draws all of her identity from her job as a part-time convenience store worker. In this delightfully weird short story we are given a glimpse into Keiko's thoughts and ambitions. Right about when things start to get mundane, the narrative unexpectedly turns from bizarre story to clever commentary on societal norms. This is a quick and quirky must read.
