An old man in slacks and a Pirates cap walked up to the counter at Paddy Cake Bakery on Saturday morning and told the young woman, “I want a Vienna loaf, white, sliced, no—”
“Seeds,” the woman interrupted as she turned to grab the loaf.
“—poppy seeds,” the man finished.
The woman turned around. “Do you want sesame? We have one with sesame.”
“No,” he said. “No seeds at all.”
