Excerpt from At Your Age Online Book
Tom Squires came into the drug store to buy a toothbrush, a can of talcum, a gargle, Castile soap, Epsom salts, and a box of cigars. Having lived alone for many years, he was methodical, and while waiting to be served, he held the list in his hand. It was Christmas week, and Minneapolis was under two feet of exhilarating, constantly refreshed snow; with his cane, Tom knocked two clean crusts of it from his overshoes. Then, looking up, he saw the blonde girl.
