Shake that belly!!!

Yesterday I was at the farmer's market when I came to a stall selling peaches. There was a young lady with a small child bartering with the vendor on a flat of peaches. She didn't have enough money to purchase them and struck up a deal with the gentlemen. She would belly dance for him to cover the cost of the peaches. She ripped off her head scarf, pulled down her skirt, pulled out a chain belt with bells and proceeded to shimmy and shake. The vendor's wife was doubled over laughing and he was thoroughly enjoying the show. Apparently they were amused and gave her the flat. The old age of bartering had a field of spectators as people clapped at the end and roared their approval. Just another day at the farmer's market. Grandmother
