They can be anywhere.
One – Two – Three – Four
He counts the strides

The store employees are arriving
Another normal day

The Pierced Pagoda Lady
Why aren’t her ears pierced?
The Vacuuming Shoe Salesman
Does he do this at home for practice?
The Lingerie Clerk
Why is she old and fat?
The Antique Dealer
Did he collect these things when they were new?
The Beautician
Who does she go to for her hair?
The TV Demonstrator
Can he bear to watch TV at home?
The Pretzel Girl
Does she eat pretzels?

Shoppers begin to gather.
Is someone having a sale?

Two boys with spiked green hair
What are they here to buy?
An old lady with a shopping cart
Where did she get the cart?
A mother with her baby in a stroller
Why is she out so early?
A young girl in a miniskirt
Is she here for an ear piercing?
A man in a business suit
Is he here to buy or sell?
A fat couple holding hands
An old man with a head set
What could he be listening to?

Another day of imponderables
For the intrepid mall walker
