Easy Furniture

The post office in is small; I remember you drove by it the first time you went to pick up stamps - the single-lane road it sits on (speed limit 50, cops strict and swift and frequent), houses a hundred yards apart and with driveways twice that length. Take McGuire Hill past the cemetery to US-1 and bear right. Mark your odometer. Six miles and on the left, just after the sign for strawberries. It has white vinyl siding, and the postmaster wears the same sort of boat shoes as your dad.
