Chips

The usual rigamarole … empty pockets, 20 questions, show ID … then into the prisoner visiting area to see Mike. Prisoners cannot leave their chair so I went to the vending machine to peruse the wilting ham sandwiches, sawdust cookies and limp chips. The woman ahead of me tried for the chips but her card was woefully underfunded. I watched her walk away. I bought the chips, palmed the bag and sauntered nonchalantly to where she sat. It’s strictly forbidden, but I pulled it off … I passed the chips to her prisoner. I returned to Mike. He smiled and said, “Very smooth!”
