This Fancy Bread Thing

Normal-looking man in line at Hannaford, holding two bags of English muffins, speaking to no one: "I don't know about no bread. See, I play sports - that's what I do, so I don't know about no bread. I'm from New York City, we don't do this, this fancy bread thing. See, this here's the country, in Maine, and that's the city. Yankees win tomorrow, I'll go on back home."

(Overheard at the Back Cove Hannaford)

it was SO GOOD to hear it in person. at first i was sure he was talking to me, but he wasn't. it was kind of a wonderful crazy monologue.
