$1.29 by Alan Catlin

“A buck twenty-nine
that’s pretty cheap
for an operation.
What kind was it?”
I asked.
“A small one.”
he said.
“Must have been.”
“They know us there.”
“Frequent shopper
discount, huh?”
“Something like that.”
“All I got is a buck
and a quarter.”
“That’ll have to do.
I guess.”
“Big sale over
at the Buy Rite
Discount Liquors.”
“I know it.”
“Good luck, with
that.”
“Thank you kindly.”
It wasn’t much of
an operation but
it seemed to be
working.
