The Last Straw Q l'm one OT Those simple souls who Tinds exciTemenT and advenTure in a chocolaTe soda. I rush wiTh gusTaTory anTicipaTion To The nearesT TounTain OT my enioymenT, buT any drugsTore aTmosphere desTroys my Theories OT a non-conTormisT. The pink-eared bunnies, Tied wiTh blue ribbons To bars oT chocolaTe, leer aT me as l sliTher around on The leaTher s+ool and Tinally esTablish myselT on The edge, my TeeT gripping The iron TooT-rail. l order a chocolaTe soda, simply because l'm Too nonplussecl To dare To Think oT anyThing else and Then look hopefully around Tor a cheery sign ThaT will read, "Please Pay When Served". The mirrors are plasTered wiTh many gay signs, so ThaT l have To duck To caTch a glimpse OT myselT llaTer regreTTing I Took The Troublel. Garish red and blue leTTering meeTs my eye: and l read, TascinaTed, "HOT ChocolaTe l-loTl", "Hawaiian TempTaTion wiTh Whipped Cream-lOc", "Special: SauerkrauT Sand- wich". lvly bleary eyes are Tocused on my Tellow eaTers, all perTecTly in harmony wiTh The gliTTer oT chromium and The claTTer OT silver. The perT young blonde nexT To me is deTTly brandishing ThaT womanly weapon, The lipsTick. l-las she a check? I glance Tur- Tively. I-las anyone a check? My soda has suddenly slid across The cold slab OT Tuckahoe marble and boldly conTronTs me, a gob oT whipped cream sTanding as sTiTT and menacing as an exclamaTion poinT. NoThing To do buT delve inTo The TroThy mixTurel You can'T drown your Troubles in a chocolaTe soda. Don'T be misguided by any Tool who Tells you ThaT! A pineapple soda maybe: l, Tor one, wouldn'T know. BUT a choco- laTe soda neverl Each TasTy sip brings nearer The gloomy momenT when you will have To Tumble amid The rubbish oT your purse Tor a mere TiTTeen cenTs: a dime and a nickel, or, if you preTer, Three nickels. The English would call iT someThing like one and Tuppence hapenny. Once, unable To geT The aTTenTion OT a clerk in l.oTT's, l leTT my change on The counTer and sTarTecl To slip unnoTiced To The sTreeT. "I-ley you!" boomed The clerk. The chromiums reTused To gliTTer1 The silver, To claTTer. l crepT back To The salesman Tollowed by The pepperminT eyes oT every chocolaTe rabbiT in every glass showcase. "You goTTa have a check!" snapped The subiecT oT many nighTmares ThaT have since filled my sleeping hours. A slip oT cardboard was clapped inTo my hand, and somehow l handed iT To a very much amused cashier. EveryTime l'm meT wiTh such a predicamenT, I resolve To organize a socieTy Tor abolishing This socially embarrassing rouTine. A plan musT be devised so ThaT peaceTul, Tun'loving ciTizens will be able To sip nonchalanTly Their sodas wiThouT worrying when To PGY- ' Marcia Freeman Snow SoTTly, soTTly iT Tell, And cloaked The world in iTs spell, WhiTer Than whiTe iT gleams On The banks OT The silver sTreams.
