    Getting Wind Of Forbidden Fruit

    | Portland, OR, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Employees, Food & Drink

    (It is 2:45 pm and I am walking home past a small Farmers’ Market.)

    Me: “May I get three peaches, please?”

    Fruit Seller: “Well, uh… the market doesn’t technically open until 3:00. I’m not supposed to start selling until then.”

    Me: “Oh, bummer. These are the first peaches I’ve seen this year.”

    Fruit Seller: “Yeah, and they’re really good.”

    (The seller quickly glances around the market at the other stalls. He then prods three peaches out of their crate and onto the sales table.)

    Fruit Seller: *dramatically* “Oh no, the wind! Quick, catch them before they fall on the ground!”

    Me: *also dramatically* “I have caught them! But alas, the wind returns!”

    (I fling the necessary cash onto the table and surreptitiously roll the peaches into my bag.)

    Fruit Seller: “Terrible weather we’re having.”

    Me: “Indeed. Well, I shall go home and wait until 3:00 then.”

    Fruit Seller: “That is wise.” *wink*
