"Is it Ingrid?" That's what the guy at the 99 cent store asked. He wasn't talking to me, but to the old woman behind me. Her plastic shopping basket was filled with cleaning stuff and some shiny beads.

"Is it Ingrid?" It threw me. I started thinking about Ingrid even though I don't know an Ingrid. Never even met one as far as I can remember. There's a song by Billy Bragg with Ingrid Bergman in the lyrics. No, it's by Woody Guthrie and sung by Billy Bragg. I searched for the melody.

I was there to buy a screwdriver.
