Give my regards to Jerry



The monthly 50% off sale our our local Goodwill is a huge magnet for bargain hunters. It’s amazing the slice of life you can meet as you fight through the crowded aisles.


Give my regards to Jerry

I met the Grim Reaper at the
Goodwill on Main the other day.
He was going through the used CDs,
looking for stuff by the Grateful Dead.

It was all a bit awkward, the two of us
just standing next to each other in the
chaos of a fifty-percent-off sale. People
kept having to step over his sickle.

Eventually I said: “The Dead, man,
they’re pretty amazing. Ever see them live?”
He looked down at me with those hollow eyes
and whispered: “Oh yes! Many times.”
