So I'm Walking Out of TJ Maxx...

after buying a replacement wallet. There were men laughing, then another man turned and laughed, as well. They were seeing something one by one, but I missed seeing who in the group matched up with whom. I had concentrated on their faces in the sun so much, I neglected to look where they were looking. All of a sudden it felt like someone had placed a drape over my right shoulder. And there this woman was. She kept pinballing from person to person and very soon an ambulance took her away. And I later saw the Banana Woman--she will either take money OR bananas--and then a closing shot from the elevated train.

There is a woman here who looks somewhat like this woman, though not as bad, and she always comes up to give you a hug when she sees you, which is her way of getting folks to give her a little something.
