The Snitch

Today, what Pegman Saw took us to Buffalo, New York. So many places to visit! Perhaps I was hungry because I ended up at a Pizza Parlor

Sure we sold pizza.
But that ain’t all we tossed over the counter.
Leo? Sold the girls. Big ones, little ones, fat, skinny. You get the picture.
Tony? Ran the fights. Men. Women. Dogs. Didn’t give a rats ass who beat up who, long as our pockets was full of coin.
Zelda? Ha! An ace that one. Best bookie me and the boys ever met.
A mix of legs and fire and chutzpah. Bettin’ fellows threatened to wager their favorite grandmother just so’s they could win a slice of the moolah Zelda kept tucked inside her bra. Never came to it, though. That dame was brainy.
Let those fools win just enough to bring ’em back next day. Smartest one of us all.
No one’s real clear about what happened. We’re just glad our Zelda takes time out from runnin’ the Bocce Club
to visit us here in the joint.

    That Zelda is the brainiest of them all, if not the most truthworthy. Great voice and a flavorful story.

    The voice sets the tone of the whole story. Zelda sounds like quite a gal. Well done.

    I read this a few times since you posted – but was not logged in so could not comment….

    I loved your Soprano vibe… (never saw the show, but that was the show that came to mind)

    and you grabbed me from the start

    “but that ain’t all we tossed over the counter…”
    ahhh – clever line and led into the rest – with a jam packed story in such few words. well done.

    also – pizza in western new york is very good – and I only had bocce pizza once – as a child (used to live in that area)

    Ah, bless him, he’s grateful that she visits him – even though it seems clear she’s the one who put them inside! Ver ystrong voice and a great tale. Alicia


  8. I don’t think he’s the sharpest pencil in the box. ; – ) Thanks for reading.
