We were crammed into the subway like socks in my sock
drawer when Bethel Ann felt someone pulling at her fanny pack. She
couldn’t move because there was no room. She heard someone behind her say
in Spanish, "use your knife, cut it," she didn’t panic. The compartment
with valuables was had a lock on it, but with a knife…. We quickly
scrambled off the subway at the next stop and immediately checked her pack..
Sure enough they had gotten into the unlocked side pocket and cleaned it
out. It was empty. Bethel Ann laughed and we asked, "what was in
there… what did they get." She replied, "Six Pepto-Bismol tablets."
