Excerpt 49

Manhattan

1980

After work, I went to see Atlantic City in the movie theater on Seventh Avenue behind Carnegie Hall. Great acting by Susan Sarandon and Burt Lancaster.

Dinner was unbuttered popcorn and a lukewarm  Sprite. Didn’t have enough money because I bought a few Father’s Day cards during lunch for my father and boyfriends. [My boyfriends/not his!]

The girl behind the counter was so kind. She accepted one bus token and twenty cents for the Sprite.
