Miss Madeline Goes Shopping
As she has every day for the past twenty-five years, Miss Madeline awakens to the memory of the murder of her fiancé, then suppresses it with the determination that today will be different; today she will work on her art—after just a wee bit of shopping.
After several exhausting hours of acquiring more of what she doesn’t even really want, she makes it back home, adds her new items to her opulent store, then goes to bed, remorseful that she has wasted another day and more of her savings, and has once again neglected her heart’s desire. Tomorrow will be different, she swears. Tomorrow she will work on her art! After just a wee bit of shopping.
But the next day Miss Madeline is arrested for shop-lifting. And her many new experiences during her three days in jail and her two weeks community service work at a large city park/golf course prove to her that life hasn’t passed her by after all. On the contrary—things are finally beginning to look up!
