I was in Zabar’s recently on my way home to Vermont. I always ask them to double-wrap our smoked fish, since it is a four-hour ride home.
Next to me was a woman who asked with great concern, “Does the lox travel well?”
One of the old-time counter men said: “It depends, lady. How far are you traveling?”
“Brooklyn,” was her reply.The slicers politely grinned and assured her that her lox would be fine. Paul Bilsky"
