The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Overheard in Mayfair

The Mayfair Market still stands, for now, on the southwest corner of NW 50th and May, though its days are clearly numbered. ("We might make it to the end of the month," a checkout person told me.) Everything other than tobacco products gets discounted 20 percent at the register; the post office has closed up, and things which turn over quickly — produce, fresh meats, bakery stuff — are in short supply. They did have, I noted, one box of actual unfrosted blueberry Pop-Tarts, which I duly snapped up.

Is it too much to hope that the CVS store being shoehorned onto this lot actually ends up looking like it belongs there? Probably.

I used to like the unfrosted cinnamon ones.

Unfrosted blueberry? When I saw this yesterday, I had to go out and look for a box of those. I ended up with unfrosted strawberry. Frosting is for cake, not toaster pastries.
