Buckets of Joy

Ruchama Schnaidman

“It’s time to call it a night,” Siman Mazel said. His face broke into a giant smile as he shuffled some papers into a pile and placed them in an envelope marked “Superstore Specials.” “This month is going to be wonderful!” he said. “And this time we don’t have any hearing aids to worry about.”

“Bucket?” Siman asked as he strode down the dark street beside his brother. “Check,” Tov whispered. “Ladder?” “Check again.” “Flashing lights and musical sign?” Siman asked. The bag in his hand slipped and he lunged to catch it. Two people walking by stared. “Quiet!” Tov hissed. The two brothers immediately pushed their packages behind their backs until the passersby moved on. “Whew, that was close,” Tov said. “Good thing our store is closer,” Siman said. He lifted the bags up higher and rushed toward their store. They reached Mazel Superstore and snuck down the side alley to the back door.
