A pocket full of crackers…

And a can of Easy Cheeze up the sleeve.

I was sitting on Penn’s campus today, having lunch a group of friends. We were swatting bugs and talking dating, when an older man in a suit caught my eye. He had been sitting on a nearby bench, but had gotten up and walked around back of it. He was staring straight at us when he slowing dipped his left hand into his suit coat pocket and pulled something out. In one fluid motion, the can of Easy Cheese slid down his right sleeve and into his hand. He depressed the nozzle and squirted a spiral of cheesy-food product onto what I could now see was a cracker and popped it into his mouth.

I had been midsentence when I spotted him and watched this operation. I totally lost my train of thought and I leaned over to my friend Angela to say, “that man has a can of Easy Cheese up his sleeve.” Word spread down the line and soon everyone was surreptitiously stealing glances, as he dispensed his lunch from an aerosol can onto crackers that kept appearing from his pocket. It was fascinating and totally strange, and I struggled to not stare at him. Finally he walked back around the bench and took his seat.

    Very strange indeed. I’m sure I would have found it fascinating too. Why did he have to stand behind the bench before accessing the Easy Cheeze? Did he have anything else up his sleeve? I guess we’ll never know…

    That is just so bizarre.
