A Dinger in the Bay



Frankie Torinaddo was walking to work with an 18.8-ounce can of soup in his right hand.  It hung heavily in his hand like a grenade; a casually-swinging pendulum marking time in step with lines on the sidewalk.  Campbell’s Select Harvest, New England Clam Chowder with Easy Open Top—the perfect lunch.  A little high in fat content, but low enough in calories if that’s all you ate, you could eat a regular dinner and not put on weight; a necessary post-forty tradeoff.
