"Pump and Dump" opens in Normal, MN. : Tales From Normal, MN.: FICTION
Just got the text today about the big news---right next to Betty Lou's Coffee Shop, right on the main drag of Normal, Mn. has opened the "Pump and Dump", yes it used to be a old small square filling station that had been boarded up for a decade, but now it has a new spanking coat of fresh paint, and is featuring Mobile Gasoline, and has a full menu of coffee and pasteries to buy for take out. The new owner is "Harry" who used to work on Wall Street, and he used to call that business the "Pump and Dump" also, so it was a smooth transition. The full name of the business as officially registered is "Harry's Pump and Dump." Harry will offer only regular oil and no upscale synthetic, and all coffee will be Folgers, served extra strong and no upscale latte's will be available.
