Reaching for the bagel behind you

Today on the way to work I bought a few groceries. Grapes, soda, bagel, that sort of thing. I threw the four plastic bags into the back seat and started driving.

Later I wanted to eat that bagel I just bought. But I was driving on the freeway and so couldn’t stop my car. Instead, I just reached blindly backward for something resembling a bagel. Amazingly, the first thing I touched was the bagel itself, which was inside one of the bags. Aside from the satisfaction gained from eating a bagel, I enjoyed the eerie fact that my hand seemed to know exactly where to grab.
