Just as the registers come into view, one of the matriarchs asked everyone to join in singing happy birthday to one of the lucky quick checkouts. It didn’t matter that no one knew her name or that she was propelled forward ahead of us; it was simply a moment of levity in the middle of farm stand theatre. Everyone joined in.

We could get cheaper cherries, but you would not like them.”
