The Lipstick Chronicles - A String Hassle by Kimbelry Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

(Click above and wear earbuds to listen)

Yesterday, I went to the International Store on Parsons Avenue, 1880 Parsons Avenue, Columbus, Ohio  43207 and was hassled because I picked up a tube of lipstick and then put it back on the shelf.  At the register, a thin man with black curly hair insisted that i had the lipstick and when I said that i put it on the shelf, he said "Take me to it".  I did.   When i asked the man what country he was from, he said "Iraq"  Then, I went to the Salvation Army, and had a bag of belongings that I got at the Free Store Earlier.  The address of the Salvation Army store is 1675 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio.  They had a group of white Appalachian females working there and they told me that I had to leave my belongings at the register before shopping, so I did.  when I was ready to leave, they gave me a big hassle about giving me my bag back.  One of the women said something about not wanting to give people belongings that belong to someone else when they knew that this belonged to me.

A Columbus P0lice Report was made because of the nature of the hassle in a 'string where the people were all retail crooks but located far apart. 

Why am I a female shopper being hassled?  Why did crooks act like they wanted to have me arrested but had no real cause?  Only the shadow knows.

More will be revealed.

"Free Collections - Ghetto Churches and Help", by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber



(wear earbuds and click on above link)

Found in a computer kiosk on a small turquiose piece of paper at The Main Columbus, Ohio public library:

"In your lives you must
think and act like Christ Jesus"
                           Philippians 2:5

God Loves you just the way
you are.  Don't confust God's love with the love of
Have a day filled with smile.

Yesterday, My fiance and I went to the United Methodist Free Store, on Parsons Avenue. 
The clerk there asked "Are you shopping for yourself/"
"Yes", I responded.
I checked out with an outfit, a few small other things
two old brass church collection plates.

The collection plates were well worn and looked
like they were dug out of the trash somewhere and then were donated to "The Free Store".
The collection plates looked like they may have belonged to
one of the many 'ghetto street churches'
few of which are designed to really legitmately help anyone in need.

John keeps saying that The Catholic Church is the "True" church.  I am Espicopalian, and have been all of my life.

Regardless of anything else,
I am glad that we took the Collection Plates to the scrapyard and then had
money for tobacco and a few other things.

THE RULES: as essay written by James Tate

This essay was read and dissected yesterday at Trinity Episcopal Church, 3rd and Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio  43215:


A man came into the store and said, :I'd like to have two steaks, about ten ounces each, a half-an inch thick please".  I said, "Sir, this is a candy store.  We don't have steaks."  He said, "And I'd like to have two potatoes and a bunch of asparagus."  I said, I'm sorry, this is a candy store, sir.  That's all we carry."
He said, "I don;t mind waiting."  "It could be many years,", I said.  "I have plenty of time". he said.
