Pickle Guy

I'm finally in New York for the next six weeks. Setting up shop, settling in. I needed pickles, and thank God I don't have to go all the way the hell down to Gus' since there's a pickles and olives place around the corner (called "Pickles and Olives"). Talked with the nice Russian dude running the place.

"South Carolina must be very nice place to live."

"Yeah, but this is a pretty great city."

"Where I live, always the traffic. Where I work, still the traffic. All the time. Too many people, too close."

"But South Carolina is a whole different kind of crazy."

Pause.

"I guess you're right."

Really great pickles, too.
