Lotsa Ketchup

 During a busy holiday weekend, turnpike service areas have a relentless stream of visitors who stop to grab a meal and use the restrooms. It's not unusual to see crumbs on a table or a stray napkin that did not get tossed. But 20 ketchup packets? There is a story here. Did someone sit down for a serious ketchup binge and then decide to finally commit to eating fries with no condiments? Did an overly active youngster work off some of his energy by retrieving one ketchup packet at a time until the parents decided they had no recourse but to abandon the collection and head to their car? We will never know.
