beguiled at the farmer's

today s from boston and i went to a flea market that sold the likes of rusty bike chains and nintendo64 games for $10. there was a single farmer stand (odd). we got cranberry beans for $1.50/lb from her; she would surely have charged us less if we blended in more with the demographic. she duped us b/c she thought we were 1) stupid 2) rich b/c we didn't bargain with her. but i just wanted to wait and see how far i could push her - next week we'll go back and say "hey these beans we got last week were great, they're $1/lb still?" and test her wit. plus i lost my camera lens cap when i popped it off to take these photos. i bet someone will be selling that lens next week too.
