Shuffling through Newton Corner
As Marash Girl took a short cut from the Newton Corner on the north side of the Massachusetts Turnpike to the Newton Corner on the south side of the Massachusetts Turnpike and in so doing, walking across the front walkway of the Crown Plaza Hotel ( in order to avoid walking around the Circle of Death -- bad enough we have to cross at the walk lights which most cars ignore -- yes, the Turnpike tore our Newton Corner in half), she happened on this young man who was standing in front of the entrance of the hotel with a cartload of belongings. Stopping, she said with a mischievous glint in her eyes, "Young man! Can't you read the sign? The sign says, 'No standing'." Turning to Marash Girl, the young man answered without a pause, "Yes, of course. Can't you see that I'm shuffling, not standing?"
