70 y/o Woman and Her Husband Outside a Liquor Store
A 70 year old woman in a long fur coat and large sunglasses stands at the door of a liquor store. Her hair is short, curled to her head and dyed brown. She looks like an older version of a 70âs Elizabeth Taylor. She is holding a half dozen re-usable cloth shopping bags. At her side is her husband. He is wearing a driverâs cap and baby blue polyester pants. He looks a lot like Abe Vigoda.
I'm parked beside them, getting the kids out of the car.
She pulls on the door of the liquor store. Itâs locked.
WOMAN: Good Golly! Whatâs going on here??
MAN: Itâs closed.
WOMAN: Itâs closed? IS THIS PLACE CLOSED??
ME: It looks like it, the sign isn't on.
WOMAN: (reads a sign in the window, loudly) NEW HOURS. OPEN AT ELEVEN.
WOMAN: WELLâ¦. HO-LEEEEE SHIT BOB!
WOMAN: Looks like weâre drinking water.
