Part Time Job

For the last week, one of the (many) pharmacies by my house has been advertising.  A man, presumably, dressed inside a cartoonish pharmacist costume, has stood out in front.  Two large speakers are built into the back of the costume and the guy stands there, bobbing up and down, to a rhythmic and repetitive “doot doot doot.”  It’s not plugged in, so he must carry a battery with him, too.  The costume’s movement was so mechanical (literally a bob up and down), at first I thought it was a machine.  I mean, who would wear a heavy, hot costume like that?!?   But then I saw some lady step out of a car and give the costume a peck on the cheek, a traditional Mexican greeting.
