Bill Gates Strikes a Pose for Teen Beat Photospread.

I have no words, except, "Check out the Macintosh behind him."

dummy #25

I pulled the ticket from the spool at the Big Y deli counter. It read 25. I was next to be served, but the woman ahead of me kept ordering different items from a never ending list. So I waited, holding my basket. I shifted one way, then the other, then back a few steps to the cheese case which was bracketed by a small but just-the-right-height rail on which I could rest my basket.

As I rested, another woman approached the deli counter from my left. I shifted restlessly, and she turned towards me with a start.

"Oh, you scared me! I thought you were a dummy!"

"Heh," I chuckled. "Other people say that to me too."

"No, I thought you were one of those people who stand motionless, like a mannequin."

"Mmmnope," I said, as I chuckled again.

She turned and moved away.

"Can I help you?" the deli clerk asked me, and I proceeded to acquire the fresh mozzarella I was after.
