Abstract

Jennifer Bryan fiction On the afternoon before her thirty-fifth birthday, the young woman closed the bakery early, much to the disappointment of the two elderly ladies, a woman from Fayetteville who always smelled like peanut butter and an even older woman from Dewitt who never went anywhere without a hat, which the young woman, who was turning thirtyfive, suspected was due to hair loss. What from she didn't know, but Hat Woman always wore a different hat, each one originally pretty, you could tell, but now faded, pilled or stained yellow. She had been spotted in her hats at the grocery store, the Photograph by Gene Royer WINTER 2008 / ThE MIssouRI REvIEW 61 pharmacy and the medical building where the young woman had had shoulder x-rays after an injury involving a box of files, high-heeled boots and a tree stake she hadn't seen until too late. The older women didn't understand why the bakery was closing early on Wednesday when the birthday in question was on Thursday. The young woman bagged up apple muffins for Peanut Butter Lady and a baguette and éclairs for Hat Woman. As she escorted them to the door, they howled and protested
