The pink decor, and brightly colored posters touting the tastiness, and uniqueness of the shop’s ice cream was overwhelming. So, I didn’t notice when the woman slunk into the shop to rummage through the ice cream cakes.
The clerk reminded her that a face covering was required, yet the woman frantically searching through the confections only grunted. When she waltzed out into the sunshine, a brightly colored cardboard boxed cake in hand, I said,
“Did she just steal that cake?”
As two other clerks raced out the door, confirming that fact, I realized that I wasn’t the only one with cravings.
