The rank, catnippy odor of tomatoes clung to my clothes. I straightened and stretched at the end of my gazillionth row, rubbing my back and anxiously scanning the sky to the west, which had turned the pus-yellow of a fading bruise. The air was thick enough to stir with a spoon. Crickets chirped storm warnings. Lightning flickered in a raft of distant clouds. Lightning terrified me. I glanced uneasily at the officer on duty, hoping she’d let the tomatoes go to mush and order us back inside. She didn’t.
It wasn’t ten o’clock yet, but the buzzer-beaters were already scavenging for bargains. The women running the sale sat on lawn chairs behind a card table, drinking coffee and scarfing down blueberry muffins, still steamy warm from the oven, slathered with butter. My stomach was making little oinking noises. The muffin fumes wrapped themselves around me, sucking me into their gravitational field. I wanted to rip the muffins out of the women’s butter-smeared hands and stuff them in my mouth, but I figured that might possibly attract attention.
Taking a running start, I leaped for the outthrust corner of the roof, snagged a rain-slick shingle, slung a knee up, and shimmied to the peak. I seat-of-my-pantsed down the other side and halted at the far edge. From here to the ground was a two-story drop. Heights are high on my list of phobias, with a scariness rating just below lightning, tornadoes, and those cardboard cylinders of biscuit dough that make a loud pop when you press a spoon against the seam and even though you’re expecting the noise it still makes you jump.
