Flash Fiction (a Hundred Words Exactly) #91: White Bread

Another morning, another commute.  Sitting in his car, stuck in traffic, he wonders if he should move to the city so he could live closer to the office, partake of high culture, and have his pick of fine ladies.  But he realizes that even if he could afford moving, preferably to a gentrified area—low crime, unthreatening minorities—well, not minorities, you call them POCs, persons of color, now—well, eventually, the economy would contract, and that gentrified area would go to hell.  Everything in the city goes to hell eventually.  But suburbia endures.  White bread’s packed with preservatives.  Yum.
