    Bought some rhubarb.

    Last time it was safe. This time… I don’t know – it seemed more edgy. Like making a crack deal in the east Bronx.

    It was twitchy. Not a lot of eye contact and a shifting of foot to foot.

    The transaction was surrupticious. I was thankful I had a substantial jacket with suitably sized pockets. It all went smoothly.

    During the transaction an expensive saloon with tinted windows rolled past, paused for a moment, and then rolled on. This unnerved the guy. I noticed the butt of a semi-automatic pistol inside his coat.

    The deal was done.

    And in a cold sweat I left the grocers.
