so this fast-talkin'
middle aged black guy
comes into my store

says hi & a few
unintelligible things

then picks up a 45 single
off the display rack & asks
"excuse me...sir...
what is this? this music?
what is it?"

i say
"yes, it's music. it's a 45"

"what kind?" he asks

"'s a band from japan
called boris"

real quick like he asks if i
have any vietnamese music

so i pull out the only other
record i have that's asian

ol' boy stares at it for a second,
& proceeds to tell me that
it's not vietnamese,
that he's not sure what it is but
"it ain't vietnamese"
