Tribute to the Popcorn Lady

I was shocked and distressed the other day when I called the popcorn lady; she is no longer there. Her service has been discontinued, and I just don't know what to think about that. I remember when I was younger calling popcorn all the time, sometimes I would call, hang up, and call right back again. And every now and again I would still call her, but apparently with everyone having a cellphone these days, no one needs the popcorn lady anymore; it's so sad. And besides that, being the person that I am; a person of exactness, I depended on her to always tell me exactly what time it was, even when no one else would. I never really thought about a world without her, and now we must all forge on as though she was never even there.
