    The special on Tuesdays was fried chicken livers. Meryl Beulow always came in early on Tuesdays.

    “When’s Estelle coming in?” She called over to where Calvin squatted behind the register, pulling up cartons of cigarettes.

    “Nine.” Calvin stood and stocked the tobacco display.

    Meryl nodded. ”Good.”

    Meryl tossed raw chicken livers around in the big steel bowl until they were completely coated. The guys who worked checking power lines for CP&L came into the Citgo in Bryanstown for lunch every Tuesday, so Meryl always started the livers up first thing.
