reginald and rachel

While visiting family in northeastern Pennsylvania, Reginald and Rachel took a walk on the local boardwalk.

“Isn’t this such a nice change from Long Beach’s boardwalk, honey?” Rachel pointed out.

“If we were there now,” her husband reminded her,”we’d be surrounded by teenagers with surfboards, Hasidic Jews in traditional black garb, and maniacs on bicycles.”

“It’s the perfect cure for our claustrophobia,”she couldn’t help noticing.

For countless hours they stayed there, enjoying the absolute silence and privacy, occasionally passing comments about the enigmatic triangle on the horizon.

“Too bad we don’t have one of those in New York”, she complained.

  1. At first I thought you were talking about Long Beach, California, although I had trouble imagining Hasidic Jews there. And when I read the line about New York, I slapped my forehead and said, of course, Long Beach, Long Island. I used to work there in the 1970s helping place psychiatric patients back in long-term facilities or getting them help to stay in their adult homes in the old hotels.

    Loved the use of the adjective “enigmatic” to describe the pyramid. No pyramids yet in Long Beach?
