A case of misplaced economy

After my computer repair shop got the heaveho from Hoboken Ave over by Jersey ’cause of the construction of the Light Rail, I moved lock, stock and old van over to Grand Street by the Turnpike exit. In this new neighborhood, I made the acquaintance of someone well-known in Jersey City politics. One summer evening, I was headed over to the Pathmark shopping center when I noticed the individual in question’s vehicle pulling up to the curb over by the liquor store. I began to walk over like to say hello, when’s I spots a local street hostess popping out of the passenger side and running into the store. Not wanting to intrude on anyone else’s ideas of recreation, I u-turned to the supermarket. I only needed a few things and real fast got in line at the cash register. Who soon follows behind, but the very same young lady previously observed. (Impossible for any mistake to be made as she was attired in — and this is no lie — a turquoise bikini and a fishnet (one inch squares) jumpsuit. I hope those so declined will forgive me, but I neglected to take the glance down required to discover what she had on in the way of footwear.) She’s holding a half-gallon of orange juice. It strikes me then that the ringleader of this little two-part harmony of a circus told her to buy the vodka over at the liquor store and then sent her to the Pathmark for the OJ, where it might be more cheaply obtained. After I gets my 39 cents or whatever change, I turns and says, “Tell — that Anthony said ‘Hello.'” She smiled and replied, “I sure will.”
