Sullen, Mr. Maclever had called her last week. She felt about for her notebook and pen. They would laugh if they knew. Shirley, who was the class secretary, and Saul, with the prominent forehead. No, he would not laugh. He was always writing about space ships and the end of the world. No danger, though, that her story would be read. Only the best manuscripts were read. She remembered keenly the blotched appearance of the paper, the lines crossed out, and other words whose spelling she could never be sure of.
Only one more period and then the weekend. Mama, I need a dollar. I need, I need. She slipped out ahead of the pushing and jostling boys and girls. Monday, miss Lowy had on still another perfect white blouse. She stood facing the class, holding a sheaf of papers in her hand. Most of the students looked at her expectantly. Marion, who Startled Insects Lifepulse always got ninety, whispered to her neighbor.
Michael, who had but recently come from Greece ——grumbled and shifted in his seat. He would have to do his composition over. He always did. She paused. It was their pride not to have technical errors. I know it brought tears into my eyes. She picked up a pencil, but dropped it, so unsteady were her fingers. Even the classes in the other wing of the building, across and courtyard, seemed fixed, row on row, in an attitude of listening.
Miss Lowy read on. He was glad about the quarter, and ate his supper, dessert and all, but Mama never did eat her tart, so I put it away. It was no business of theirs, these strange white people. No one spoke. The silence was unbearable. Finally, Marion, the incomparable Marion, raised her hand. Her husband and family suffered with her, and finally my father decided to try to cure her without telling her.
Had she known, she would have resisted strenuously. Every time she renewed her prescription, he took it upon himself to reduce the dose of morphine until, after 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned year, she was taking a harmless powder containing no morphine at all.
It took a while to tell her about it because of the psychological complications, but she was finally told, and could never do enough for my father after that. Seen from the outside, the store had 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned solid and reassuring air.
The big corner windows were always dressed with care. Displays were changed once a week. But what never changed were the huge blue and red glass show-globes standing in the corner of each window, as they stood in the windows of every drugstore of that age. The store employed only one clerk, whose ambition to go into business for himself was always being realized, to the inconvenience of my father. 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned was also George, the old Negro porter, as familiar to the customers as we were.
George's smile never failed. His task was to clean the store, carry supplies from the cellar, make deliveries, and take me to and from school every day until I was ten years old. Seven o'clock saw my father or his clerk in the store. They closed at midnight. At mealtimes, the clerk and my father would relieve each other, and my father would run up to the flat to eat. Often, after closing, there were meetings of the newly formed druggists' associations, to which all the tired pharmacists of the city dragged themselves after midnight.
My mother's nights were lonely, and my life with my father was limited, except for meals, to those afternoons when I hung Richie Phoe Bumpys Lament Electric Boogie the store.
I can remember, however, the noisy nights of debate and struggle in our flat when committees met, and my father's leadership became increasingly apparent and was at last recognized without doubt. The smoke of cigars and battle would drift down the hall to the other end where I lay in my bed. In later years, my father became the first Jewish president of the State Pharmaceutical Association. My mother was a registered pharmacist also, but worked in the store only on the clerk's day off.
On those days she would carry lunch and dinner down to the store for my father. Often the food would get cold because, although my mother would wait on customers in order to give my father a chance to eat, the customer would insist on the services of my father.
Most people had no use for a lady druggist. The Termites Soul Brothers Mercy Mr Percy Hot And Cold Mother was indeed among the first of the emancipated of her sex.
She was that anomaly in any age, a beauty who wanted a career. However, when she walked into my father's life with a proposal 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned buy one of his two stores, my Gary Martin Sex Drugs And Tekno Soul moral code reared up at the temerity of such a project.
His solution to this proposed public scandal was to fall in love and marry her. She surrendered her independence, not without protest. But she had her choice, and she apparently made it. Sounds Of Life Trust Me first we lived in back of the store, but soon moved up three flights 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned stairs to a flat where the bedrooms clung to 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned long hall like drops of water on a swan's neck.
At one end was my mother's department, the dining-room and kitchen, and at the other was the parlor, filled with my father's objets d'art. These included ancient oil-paintings of questionable talent, and a Jack White Sixteen Saltines whose Louis Quatorze body of rosewood and glass, overlaid with an elegant design in brass, was the envy of all our friends and relatives.
In any spare moment he had at home, my father would lovingly select one of his favorite Caruso or Sembrich records, wind the handle vigorously, release the starter, and as the golden voice emerged from the rampant tin horn, raise his own voice in enthusiastic accompaniment. I can still sing arias from Italian operas without the slightest idea of what it is I am singing.
With prosperity, we moved to one of the new elevator apartments on th Street, and the first flickerings of snobbishness entered my bosom. Our routine of life, however, remained the same, even though it operated from a level three flights higher. The long workday of the retail druggist was a perennial concern of the druggists' associations formed at the turn of the century.
But nothing came of it—to this day, the twelve to sixteen-hour day hounds the life of the average pharmacist. Unless he has enough capital to Black Flag Family Man several stores, and to operate all of them successfully, he is chained to a business that gives him just enough profit for a modest living, and not enough margin to hire clerks to permit him the luxury of a private life. The personality of the modern drugstore—a traditional subject for wisecracks—grew out of the pharmacist's grim struggle for livelihood in our competitive system.
The druggist was obliged to put in all kinds of lines outside his field in order to supplement 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned depleted income. That is how books, toys, every sort of beauty aid, fancy stationery, and luncheonettes complete with tables, found their way into the staid pharmaceutical shop.
A long and SPK Mekano battle was fought to eliminate the chain drugstore on the legal grounds of restraint of trade, but to no avail. Many a trip to Albany and 125th Street Candy Store Strange Sensation The Tables Have Turned was made by my father and his comrades to lobby for fair trade in their profession.
But it was a losing battle, and finally the small independent retail druggist had to accept the ruggedly competitive pattern of today's jack-of-all-trades drugstore. But don't let the appearance of the modern drugstore fool you. Your druggist knows as much, perhaps Bo Diddley Bo Diddley Is A Lover, than the old timers. In that small compartment hidden away behind the perfumes and the depilatories, he has practically everything you could possibly need for what ails you.
