Whole Foods, East Houston between Bowery and Chrystie

Damp-haired guy, just off work in a trench coat, button-down, and tie.  On his cell phone in the express check-out line carrying a basket full of groceries.

Guy: (serious, sotto voce) Just tell me what’s wrong.

Pause.

Are you mad at me for getting the sea bass?

Pause.

You’re not going to eat it, are you.

Pause.

I can tell that you’re not.

Pause.

What are you going to do to me, then?

Pause.

Pause.

Fine.  I’ll find out when I get home.

He snaps his phone shut.
