So I said to Gabriel...(A Christmas Story)

Outside, snowy and still, little brushes of sound, pools of light, darkness gathered up around the house. Inside, not so cozy, messy, air heavy with yesterday’s argument, and the day before’s.

She just wanted to know where to buy stick candy

A neighborhood Dollar General Store was crowded this past Saturday morning.              

There were probably six, eight, maybe 10 customers in line waiting to checkout when a decent looking, modestly dressed woman approached customers in line to checkout.
