"She steals," said Wilma, nodding in the direction of Peggy.
"Who steals? Steals what?"
"She does. When she won at Bingo she took two pieces of candy."
Peggy has a bit of trouble at Bingo keeping track of what the winning combination is, finding the numbers when they are called. Even so, with a little help from her friends, she wins from time to time. A basket of candy is passed to her, the winner. The candy is the smallest candy bars available, the kind you buy in bags to give to Trick or Treaters on Halloween. And Peggy took an extra one.
"Several of us called her on that. She was upset," continued Wilma.
"What?" I exploded. "You actually blew the whistle on that old lady because she took an extra nickle's worth of candy?" Expressed that way, Wilma saw the funny side of her indignation.
"The candy police and I got her," Wilma laughed.
