a FLANKEN story...

the sheer volume of people.... in the disturbingly, tension-filled  supermarket...
was WEIRD,
 to say the least...
it was as if they were squirrels,
preparing to store their acorns or nuts or whatever it is that squirrels store...
in order to be securely snuggled into their 'caves' for the long winter...
funny...
this particular scenario consisted of her fellow Jews,
wearing yarmulkes(scull caps) and denim skirts...
storing things like FLANKEN and CORNED BEEF...
she guessed, in order to be safe and 'meat-secure' for Tuesdays purported SNOW STORM !!
she chuckled...
she found herself wanting to TELL THEM that she was,
 indeed, ONE OF THEM too !!
that she, perhaps, looked a bit more secular than they...
but that she had come here to BUY THE FLANKEN too !!!
in truth, how much could she JUDGE them really ???
they had merely traveled a few miles from their homes to the MEGA STORE..
but SHE !!!!.......
had traveled to ANOTHER STATE !!
in search of  voluminous, KOSHER FOOD !!!

there was a creepy guy...
40ish, fat, dumpy...greasy...
with his mom or something...
he couldn't stop staring at her...
mind you, men often stared at her...
BUT THIS WAS DIFFERENT...
it reminded her of one of those scary,
 'Lifetime' movies...
the way he kept leering at her...
and following her...

she figured ,"better safe than sorry"...
and she reported it to the checker,
who concurred that the man was staring and in fact,
 kind of WAITING for her...

she was escorted to her (loaner) car..
(ewwww)...
(the HUMMER was still in the shop!)
she determined right then and there that she would
STAY LOCAL when meat shopping from now on.......
or....
she would maybe buy a DENIM SKIRT for just these occasions !!
