So I found myself looking through the Klondyke Kontact calendar (that I affectionately refer to as a "date packet") for something - anything - to entertain me. Dyke Night at Carrs, very appealing. For years I've fantasized about meeting a woman in the produce section of a supermarket. I push my screeching, squeaky-wheeled cart out of plain jane supermarket land over the threshold into the produce department. Paradise. She's there, jet black hair, milk 'n honey skin, fondling a cucumber with delicate hands, fingers gently squeezing the tip, whore-red fingernails glistening against the green. I wheel over to the zucchinis, revving up my shopping-cart engine and skid to a stop exactly parallel to the shelf. Is she impressed? I wonder. She looks my way, her eyes shy, chin lowered almost to her chest, and smiles. I look behind me, all around. I turn my eyes back to her. Yes her eyes say, it is you I'm looking at, you big g'luke. I flash her my "gee ain't I cool" half smile and laugh nervously. She looks away. She goes back to her cucumber inspecting task, completely entranced now, rolling it over in her palm, check the roundness, straightness, firmness of it. She's toying with me, watching me watch her. I walk around to the front of my hotrod shopping-cart, pick up a zucchini, lean back with my butt against the rail and cross my legs. Supercool, dyke-on-display, veggie-fondling posture. We stay like this, blatantly cruising, looking at each other's veggies, then into each other's eyes, then back to our own veggies. The sprayers come on and jolt me back into reality, where I am standing behind my cart nervous and awkward, knuckles white on the steering bar, staring stupidly at her. i am getting wet. She notices, and looks at the mist falling on my right forearm. Disregarding the plastic bags, I load two dozen well-shaped zucchinis into my cart, stacking them like firewood against the grate that divides a kid from a grocery. She watches. I move my rod closer to her, excuse myself, reach by her and proceed to load a dozen cucumbers on top of the zucchinis. She watches. I tear out of there doing a wheelie and squealing my tires. A burnt rubber smell wafts into the stale supermarket air. I race around, pushing my hotrod cart to its performance limit, red linin', wheel squeaking louder and louder. I know that the front wheel Reprinted from Klondyke Kontact, a publication of the Alaska Women's Community. bearing could toast itself at any time, and I know she can hear me everywhere I go in the store - squeak, squeak, squeak - meat, dairy, hygiene, frozen food, housewares. I am zoomin'. I am a flash of blue blaze. I see the envy on the shopper's faces as I speed by them with my lean, fast, stylish but economical shopping-cart (Cart of the Year according to Shopping Cart Trend magazine). The squeak is embarrassing, but still it doesn't matter. I am on the cutting edge. I wheel up to the front of the store and slowly zig-zag through the check zone, squeaking but still looking cool. A highly congested, dangerous area - relevant school zone laws apply. Shoppers are anxious and impatient. Dykes socialize and acknowledge their kindred in small, station-wagon Subaru-like carts. Younger folks bounce the front ends of their low- rider carts. Bearded men and their wives wait, annoyed, with their snow-plow carts.
