The Corner Store

Something was afoot in Fanwood, something so contentious that even the children were talking about how the store at the corner of Martine and South Avenue—the Corner Store, where for years we’d been buying our candy and soda—was being forced to relocate down the street, and how the town was puzzling over what one could legitimately call a corner store that no longer stood at a corner, a question that was soon answered when the store reopened with what remains the longest name I’ve ever seen: The Corner Store Where Friends Meet in the Middle of the Block.
