125/365 Eddie - Third Cousin Twice Removed

Eddie, unemployed and approaching fifty, frequently visited the Woolworth’s department store where my great-aunt worked after her retirement from fifty-three years in the ball bearing factory.

“Couple dollars?” he'd mooch.
“Not for booze."
“No. Final Net.”

Eddie wooed ladies with his Liberace-style, gravity-defying pompadour.

What an original guy. Maybe he got high off the Final Net. Thus killing two birds with one stone.
