The scene is a storage locker, partly spilled out into the grey corridor. Two people are deep into its contents.

``I said I'm throwing this out.''

``I didn't disagree. Of the many things you're doing today, throwing that out is one.''

``You're not agreeing.''

``Why do I have to agree? It's an empty bottle of hand lotion, why do I have to decide whether to throw it out?''

``Why did we store it in the first place?''

``Probably we didn't want to decide about it.''

``What were we deciding not to decide that we kept an empty bottle of skin cream?''

``Maybe whether we liked the flavor.''

This is another of those pieces inspired by two words I happened to put together in the right place, and it owes its existence to chefmongoose, so, you're warned.  )

``Out!''

``Yes, m'love.''

Trivia: By 1962, containerized cargo made up 8 percent of the Port of New York's general cargo, all of it domestic trade. None of the containerized trade was international. Source: The Box: How The Shipping Container Made The World Smaller And The World Economy Bigger, Marc Levinson.
