    There Once Was a Man From Nantucket …

    | Nantucket Island, MA |

    (I worked at this local market as a kid during the summers on Nantucket. Here are some questions the tourists asked.)

    Random Customer #1: “Where is the beach?” (We’re on an island???)

    Random Customer #2: “Where’s main street?” (The store was on main street.)

    Random Customer #3: “When did Nantucket become a part of the United States?” (The same time as the rest of Massachusetts. It’s not the 51st state, people.)

    Random Customer #4: “What is that one – O-RAY-oh?” (We serve ice cream; Oreo is one of our flavors).
