Click to use the Talking Dictionary 76. Cheap: Apt., Postcard, Applicant (2)


76. Dan walked into a liquor store. He asked if they sold postcards. The clerk said, "No, but the post office does." Dan said, "Not anymore they don't. They sell greeting cards now." The clerk said, "Really? When did that happen? That's pretty weird, isn't it? A post office that doesn't sell postcards." Dan walked a few more blocks south. Not one store sold postcards. He decided to try Borders on 7th Avenue. Borders sold postcards. They were $1 each. He bought one. Walking back toward the post office, he entered Duane Reade, a popular drugstore. Maybe it sold postcards, and cheaper. It did, and they were only a quarter. He would return the Borders postcard later. He walked into the post office. He put the stamp on the postcard. He addressed it. He dropped it into the slot. It was 4:30. He had beaten the deadline! He crossed his fingers. 2.3
