The Corner Store
10x10 oil on panel, black floater frame
Did everyone grow up near a corner store? It seems like there’s always a corner store. How else would you get your Bazooka bubblegum?
Don’t get me started on Bazooka, which was about as chewy as a Chevy Chevette was fast, which is to say, the opposite of chewy.
Although really, Mary Jane candies had to be the worst. What they lacked in chewiness, they made up for in ghastly flavor. They really put the ASS in Molasses.
It was the kind of candy you’d eat if you wanted to remove a tooth filling without going to a dentist.
Damn near child abuse.
