Quote #10

[Lorraine:] No customers were over by the peanut stand where that same old woman from the last visit was giving me the evil eye. Worst of all, she was putting peanuts into her mouth at the same rate Jane Appling had devoured the chocolate-covered ants. She really looked like the wrath of God, and I was too scared to go over and buy a package of peanuts for myself. (14)

Lorraine seems genuinely frightened by this "omen," and her fear seems to foreshadow Mr. Pignati's death later that day.
