Day 156: Raspberries

"How about this one?"
He smiles, combining two pints
Of berries for me

(There's a guy who works at the Borough Hall Greenmarket who is a shameless sweet talker. He regularly convinces me that I need more peaches and plums, because how could I possibly get through two whole days with only four plums? [He's right; I can easily eat all four before I've left the market.] Today I desperately wanted to buy raspberries as well, but decided against it because Intrepid Boyfriend and I are on a tight budget. Sensing his opportunity, Mr. Sweet Talker began to work his magic.)
