“Hey Melvin,” Stanley blurted out. Youse know anything about wasps or what?”
“You mean like our neighbors the Hollingsworths?” his friend answered. “Not much, why?”
Stanley gave Melvin his “Youse stupid or what?!” look and dragged him out of sight of the insects.
He asked him if he wanted to attend this year’s Pittston Tomato Festival.
“It’s from today to Sunday man! We just gotta go!!” was the only possible answer.
They then drove over the Fort Jenkins Bridge into the annual extravaganza.
“I know it’s Woodstock’s anniversary,” Stanley bragged. But man oh man nothing can possibly touch this!”
